    That is just so funny, not for the guy though. I hope it stings Jeeps bottom line.

    As much as a Jeep guy that I am, they are toys and not reliable at all. There is a reason I have a tow rig and trailer, even with just 35's. Now to be fair, I take my Jeep places most other vehicles can't go and that plays a big part in reliability.

    Had a 95 YJ 4 cyl. This was beast and could handle almost everything I took it into. While I was in Sicily the first problem was the full pump. I hate Jeep for putting the thing in the top of the tank and no access panel. Got a new one and swapped them out she ran good again for a few months then things hit the fan. I would turn the key and nothing would happen. I checked the battery starter everything I could think of. Also I notice while driving like the engine would almost die out only to revive and start down the street. I would sit there for 15 + minutes turning the key back and forth until she would start and die only on the next attempt she would start and stay running. I got fed up and sold it only to find out 3 years later there was a recall on the ignition systems. FML.........
