Just bought my 2014 JKUR a couple weeks ago, and other than a bad Schrader valve on the air conditioner (fixed now and the AC blows nice and cold), I haven't had any other issues with my new Jeep. Reading the forum one would get the impression that all Wranglers are problem children. My Jeep is my daily driver, and I'm honestly in love with it. So are there any of you out there who haven't had any major problems with your JK? I'd love to hear some reports from long time JK owners about how tough and reliable their JK has been.

I purchased my JK in December 2013. I have 11,200 miles on it with absolutely no problems at all.

You only hear about the bad because people tend to rant or need help finding the problem. Why post or say anything about your jeep or whatever if its doing what it's supposed to? Then again people with JKs seem to have more trouble than my TJ and CJ :)

You're right, I guess I was just getting worried over all the negative threads. I really love my new Jeep and hope to have it for a long time to come. It's the most fun of any vehicle I've owned to drive (ok, maybe it ties with my 57 Dodge pickup...but it's garaged and waiting for a resto).

I have a 12 JK Sport with 6300 miles and no problems--knock on wood. The only thing I could remotely call an issue was a rattle I had at the gate but was fixed by a little silicone spray.

I have a 09 with 96k trouble free miles and a 14 with just under 8k trouble free miles. No one comes on here to say, "Nothing bad happened today."

well of course, nobody is going to some in here and say "hey guys, my 3.8 is running just fine today!"

ah daggo beat me to it

of course the definition of "issues" may be different for others, some people get rattles and leaks and treat it like their engine just blew up, I'm over here all "well, the axles are still attached!"

Just bought my first jeep 2 weeks ago. Have alway built 4x4 trucks but never had a jeep. 600 miles on mine and no problems so far. My neighbor has a 2012 jku with 83,000 miles and he hasn't had any issues with it. Hopefully I have the same luck.
