The only other thing I can think of is the front differential being IFS and the bushings going out. Two of the three bushings are relatively straight forward, there is one on top of the differential that takes hours to replace. Symptoms are typically a loud clunk when you go from Park to Drive/Reverse. Front struts are well, front struts. Not as easy as shocks to install. A lot of the rest of the WK is reused from the WJ and other jeeps - transmission (RFE545), rear end (Chry 8.25), electronics, etc. Hemi-related parts are pretty abundant too. I'm sure others will chime in with their unique WK issues though.
