How often do your window regulators break?
 
I've had my 03 wj for 2 years now and have replaced 3 of them and just tonight one that I replaced broke again. It's the same issue on all of them, the cable breaking.

May have found my solution. Link and partial text from site.

This solid aluminum block replaces the plastic part molded into the slide on 1999-2004 Grand Cherokee power window regulators. When the plastic OEM block cracks, it releases the cable holding the window up and the window will fall down.

Here is a video of them showing you how to install the new cable block.

out of stock, haha but yea seems like they would work. Ive replaced quite a few regulators but only seems to happen every couple of years

Whenever I have the door panels off for work on any car I own I spray the wires and wheels with spray grease....never had to replace one yet. Well... except on my audi 20v quattro...when it was broken when I bought it!

2004 replaced 1 regulator in 9 years.

If your breaking 3 of them in 2 years, your not fixing the problem that's causing them to break.

I have over 30,000 cycles on mine and have never had one break.

That may be it, cause I never shut the doors with the windows down. Good catch!
Roll them up, shut and lock.

That's how the first one broke. From then On I dont slam the doors hard even if rolled up to be safe.
