Same here... 93 Wrangler, traded with zero issues on a 96 Wrangler, drove it till it had over 200K on it (no issues), traded it for a 98 Grand Cherokee (same I6 engine), drove it to over 200K (only issue was the transfer case, at 190K), traded that on an 06 commander, never an issue (except my daughter re-designing the front bumper), and now a new '14 JKU Sport. 7K miles, no issues.
I'd say you got a bad vehicle out of the gate.
(and yea, there are some die hard Jeep loyalists here who will tar and feather you for using "bad" and "Jeep" in the same sentance, but there are idiots in every community. Ignore the few like that and listen to the people who add to this forum rather than taking away from it and you'll be fine.)
