Any Known Issues After 60,000 Miles?

My '08 is coming up on the end of the warranty I bought and I am wondering if there are any common issues to be aware of. Jeep is about to hit 60K miles so curious if there are any mechanical, electrical, cosmetic problems etc that tend to pop up.

Thanks in advance!

I had 53,500 miles with 150 passes down the 1/8 mile with no problems. I had new gears put in but they whined from day 1 and it took 5 yrs until the whine got a little louder.

Im approaching 100K on the beast, and knock on wood, she is still running strong as ever, just stay up on your maintenance, fluid changes, etc and you will be fine!!

Sold mine at 70k miles, no problems. I just kept up on regular maintenance. Drove mine very spirited and some 1/4 passes.

Well I bought mine used at 67,XXX and had my upper radiator hose crack but that's really it like said just keep up on maintence (Through your dealer) and you'll be good. I also have a extended warranty sence I'm not planning on doing major bolt on mods which I highly recommend saved me alot of coin.

Ben, I'm a little over 70K miles and the only thing that I have had problems with is the park switch. Got it fixed already. Other than that, all has been good.
