Not sure which 4wd system they had transmission, etc. Anybody have some info for me that could help? Also possible common problems with these?
i have had a 2002 4.7 V8 since new...
Here are common issues:
If build date is after 2/02 then:
1) window regulator failure ..... $60 per door as a DIY ( medium complexity)
2) auto climate control blend door failure ..... $125 fix from Chrysler as a DIY
3) vacuum hoses crack in the EVAC system resulting in CEL .... $20 fix
4) radiator failure .... $200 fix as a DIY
That's been my experience. Wonderful ride for 12 years and 160,000 miles .
