What’s up everybody!
I just bought a 2014 JK Unlimited Sport (Anvil color). It has 85k miles on it, appears to be well taken care of and not abused driven. Everything stock with no mods. Just wondering if there are any common issues to expect or just any general maintenance to be done around this mileage?

Thanks in advance!(y)

I do not see any flaws in my JK '14 auto trans. Wait until you reach 100,000 miles so go for it and enjoy.

Following. Just bought a 14 JKU, mostly stock as well.

Looking at the heated seats not being hot and the lack of a backup camera as the biggest priorities.

Agreed on the backup camera! I live in Los Angeles where the heated seats is not really an issue for me

Umm... Hmmmm.... Make sure someone did not play submarine. Seen that a few times, other than that, better half will be hiding checkbook, credit cards, and bar you from making any online applications for vehicle improvements from those strange guys on the corner.

I just bought an 08 with no real idea of service history and 150K. plan to replace the air filter, plugs, wires and serpentine belt - also check all fluids and probably change/renew the coolant. Other than that, tire pressure and regular oil/filter changes. Someone suggested replacing the O2 sensors, PCV and EGR valves is not needed since those would all throw a code if bad. I did get an ODB2 reader and will check to see if there are in fact any codes.

If you replace any of the 02 Sensors, you have to go OEM an for the valves the same thing as the computer gets acid reflux if you use the wrong stuff.
