Ray04TJ I just recently purchased an 2004 X with 64k miles, I noticed a tapping sound in the engine and took it in for service, free of course with the 3 year 36000 mile extended warranty. It turns out it had a collapsed lifter and also needed a new rear main seal. The other thing that I have not got around to fixing is the a/c only orks on speeds 3 and 4. I havent wanted to part with it again just yet but I will probably take it in soon. There is also four holes on either side of the bumper so I am thinking someone had a tow hitch hooked up? So far no more problems and it runs great.

timberwolf0122 05 LJ 45K so far the only thing to break is a fog light fell off while pulling some one out a ditch and the little straps that stop the doors opening to on the passenger side broke.

alt13 97 2.5 364,500ish kms..... so 221,000 miles. 150,000ish kms of which were with 33" tires and no speedo corrections, so showing less then what it actually has. now up to 35's. daily driver and weekend warrior til last winter, now it's just a street legal toy!! No major problems, just regular wear and tear issues.... fuel pump, water pump and steering gear box were the only major replacements.

00jeepred my 00 has 116,000 on it and the only problems i have had were self inflicted so can't complain.

jazzman31 '04 130,000, not a single problem out of the old girl. Owned her since day one. Until last week when I sold her.

'99 137,000 no problems since Ive owned her from '06. Except for when I had that warranty and I would take it in every 2 weeks or so and complain of problems. Ive had the whole front pulleys, water pump, distributor, top end and bottom end of the engine, transfer case, transmission, driveshafts, front axles u joints, wheel bearings, ac fan, seat belt retractors and the steering column replaced. Yeah I was very picking about this jeep. I got the warranty with a 25$ deductible and I used every bit of my warranty and I practicaly have a new jeep.
