None of those vehicles, engines or transmissions are currently in production.    There are some problems (water pump on the 3.5, tss/oss sensors on the 6F50 trans, PTUs) but nothing like those older problems and I don't think current Jeeps are that much better.
 
But I guess the grass is always greener....

Well you can't say he didn't give Ford a chance. I personally would have never even considered owning any of those cars. I think all manufacturers learn from their mistakes and redesign things to make them better. Hopefully they made my 2016 with a better PTU and water pump then a 2010. Jeep isn't even on my list of possible cars to buy. But I have some friends that have mega miles on theirs. But they weren't trouble free either. I'm on my seventh Ford and haven't had a single issue I'd really complain about. But I get rid of them around 130 to 150 k miles.

They even refill the PTU through the drain plug by using a syringe.


Let's see now, the drain plug is located on the bottom of the PTU, the syringe squirts the lube up into the unit, what keeps it in before you close the drain plug?
