84940 mi   I bought this SUV, in 2005, Shortly after purchasing it we noticed a noise on cold startup which turned out to be a power steering pump, issue covered by dealer, replaced starter, radio speakers, waterpump and PS pump, all on their dime. 
136400 C $985 Front Axle shaft replacement, goes from the transfer case to the front differential, for the 4wd. These AREN'T readily available from Chrysler with a minimum 8 week backlog, usually last only 100 000km. Bought 1 custom fabricated for $150 less than Cryslr 
134800   The driveshaft (CV type) between the transfer case and the front differential wore out. This usually happens at 100000 km, Chrysler couldn't supply the part, had to go to aftermarket custom made part, which ended up being cheaper and heavier duty.
