Hello from Houston! Been surfing this site for awhile now. I own a 05 WK Laredo. Bought it a few years ago with 70k miles as a stop-gap for our need for an SUV until we could afford a newer one around this time. Well, it's at 140k now. Replaced the AC condenser recently and the cats are flat-lining and throwing codes. Though these are not cheap repairs, I could definitely think of worse. Did some routine maintenance like spark plugs, transmission fluid, gear oil at 100k and always used high mileage oil every 3500-4000 miles. Also replaced worn shocks. Hey, it's a high mileage vehicle, things wear out, right?
Anyways, I've grown quite attached to my Jeep. It's never left me stranded, hauled us and the dogs across the country on 2000 mile road trips, held 20 bags of mulch, manure and fertilizer, and gets me to work everyday on an 80 mile round trip. After writing this, wondering why I'm looking at a '13 or '14 JGC!
Love the site, hope to contribute something half way useful, entertaining, or insightful.
