Threw in a vote for drivetrain/suspension
The Jeep as stock will last like any other vehicle... One of the first mods that people like to make to their JP's is to modify them for taller tires and greater lift. This tends to be where we start seeing problems with drivetrain and suspension issues whether it is due to mixing and matching parts not sold together in a kit or taking short cuts on things in order to make the job easier or cut a cost. If you buy a complete suspension kit that is designed specifically for your needs that include all vital parts to do the job correctly, you should have no more problems than any other vehicle owner. I have had 5 Jeeps. On the first two, I tried to do the lifts cheaply and inexpensively cutting corners and not taking all precautions or using all the parts included in the kit. I mixed and matched parts and ran into many driveline and tranny issues. I finally got some experience through my mistakes and began purchasing complete kits with all necessary parts spending more money on better kits and have not had any major problems since. When you purchase a more pricey JP like a Rubi or loaded up Sport, you will want to do the kits correctly to avoid these problems. If and when you choose a Jeep, make it a hobby and take your time when installing parts. Do them right, and search this website for Q and A's regarding others personal experiences, problems, and issues. Hope this helps.
