These things are great in inclement weather. While the AWD system isn't as great as some of the newer ones like what's in my harley F150, or what's in newer toyotas & volkswagens..but it's functional in all it's brutish ways. It definitely made me feel confident about the vehicle in some icy/snowy weather we got a few years back, and I'm running Vredestein summer tires. It wasn't excellent, but even on the slick tires it was great as long as i minded my road manners.
Reliability, in my eyes, isn't something I would look to a chrysler/jeep/dodge for, at least not in this day and age. Many people have had great luck with theirs, some have had awful luck with theirs. I'm not sure what to tell you on this, my vehicle is unbelievably reliable now. But this is after having replaced the rear end, driveshaft, trans...pretty much the whole driveline. Mine gave me problems since the very week I bought it(brand new)and after replacing it all, I'm very happy. My previous 06 jeep limited, brand new, blew out the rear end on it aswell. I've not had much luck with the CJD products.
