I agree with "ThisGuyUKnow". We got our CJ7 about 2 1/2 years ago and it wasn't very reliable because of all the worn parts. But with some steady persistance and a lot of work, I'm comfortable sending my wife to Florida (about 500 miles one way) by herself. Of course, since it IS a nearly 25 year old vehicle, I'm crawling around under it from time to time checking for new leaks, loose bolts, and other potential problems trying to catch them before they become a problem. As long as you're not afraid of working on it, it will be just as reliable as any other well maintained 25 year old plus car.
