For sure jeeps are durable, but I wouldn't say the are low maintenance by any means. Jeep is kind of a lifestyle, you learn to deal with and love little squeaks, bangs, pops, and wind noise.

read all the "you know you drive a (insert jeep) when" threads. that will tell you all you need to know.

My YJ quit on me one time. Added some gas and it was fine though.

I have had my 88 YJ 2.5L since 93', used it and abused it without proper maintenance. Now taking care of her and still running like a champ. knock on wood

Still all stock, had to have the tranny worked on 1 time, and that was my fault.

My jeep is bullet proof, and I have proof. I got a bullet dent in the driver side rear fender. This pic was taken back in may when I started working on it again.

My 95 YJ has 187,000 miles on it and I would get in it and drive it anywhere. I had to replace my transmission after 186,000 hard miles.

I would imagine that if you treat a jeep like a car then it may not be as reliable. Most of us crawl under our jeeps frequently to maintain it. I haven't had any big problems just a handful of small things that were simple fixes.
