What's wrong with you Jeep?

I've been getting one issue after another, so I thought it might be fun to post your list of things wrong with your Jeeps, so we can all laugh and feel better

I'll start…07 2 door JK

-torque converter shudders
-mild bumpsteer
-new front u-joints on the way out
-driver door pin is bent
-new windshield whistles
-passenger tail light has a hole (tree)
-various random scratches

RECENTLY FIXED- front u-joints, trans lines replaced, both tail light bulbs replaced, steering clunk, death wobble, cracked windshield, rear axle leak.

So what crazy crap is going on with yours?

New 11' JK. Nothing wrong yet, but there are a few changes that should be made...nothing major. Just minor convenience issues. Like.......

Having the front seats return to their original position after leaning them forward for access.
Dome lights could be a bit brighter.
Having both 12v outlets on the dash. Instead of the one in the console storage.
Directional sound could be louder. Can barely hear it, end up leaving them on sometimes now.

Dam gate hinges don't want to open and close without a lot of force. I even took the spare off and its the same.

Mine's an '11, so not too much wrong with it.

-Door pillar rattle on passenger side
-Huge brush scratch across both doors on passenger side, tried buffing it out with a power buffer, and no go, its too deep
-More brush scratches on the driver side doors

rust bubble on drivers fender just starting, rear corner from PO hitting somthing I assume, so there is rust. Tailgate hinger starting to bend downwards with stock tires, lame. bad shift times, uneven idle, speedo and odo off, tires unbalanced, crazy wobble at like 70mph (from previous I assume) steering wheel isnt straight, uh Im sure there is more Im missing but that just gives me more to work on and have fun with nothing too serious, and alot im waiting for warm weather to get fixed and worked on.

1999 TJ
1) steering wheel not straight
2) in terrible need of alignment
3) a terrible sqeaking from what I assume is the front driveshaft(I dropped it today and still have to drive it to see if the squeaking disappeared)
4) fan not working
5) rust is eating through the passenger side floor pan( Spring break get here so I can Monstaline my baby the right way!!!)
6) brakes are squeaky
7) refuses to shift when I've been driving for a while and every time we bleed the clutch we apparently never do it right.
8) I don't have money...Oh sorry that's an owners problem

Wow... I need to do some maintenence.

the problem mysteriously dissapperared as soon as I drove and picked up my temp gun. Added royal purpal max atf anyway to test. I was able to drop temps 10 degrees across the board everwhere I took readings. I will continue to minitor to see if this stays true.

Keep in mind that your Jeep is 12 years old now.
Stuff does wear out. Just think, in dog years that's 84!!

I was just thinking this morning about how I still visualize my Jeep as new as it was the day I bought it, but it's almost 6 years old already. I see the wear and tear but am in complete denial and continue to fight it off one paint chip at a time.
