Reliability question

This question is for anyone who has owned a wrangler for an extended period of time.. I was wondering how reliable they are long term.. as far as engine and auto trans. are concerned. I am looking to order one tomorrow and was just wondering if how long they tend to last.. Any info would be great. Thanks

If the JK engine/tran is as near as good as the TJ's then if taken care of it should last well over 100k+

The final decision to buy my 08 Wrangler X, was motivated by a trusted friend who said that he put 180,000 on his, and gave it to his son, who then put ANOTHER 180,000 on it (same engine) before it died.

Considering that the new "Power Train Warantee" covers the ENGINE as well, if you take care of it mind you, I think it's a "win-win" situation, provided the "Wrangler" is going to meet your daily "ordinary life" needs.

If you have five kids, and have to be the one taking them here and there, it may not be your best choice.
