Blown engine

Well folks, after 203,000km my engine is dead. Despite following all the maintenance protocols. A 2007 vehicle should not die after only 200K in my opinion. $9000 quote to replace engine with rebuilt so I sold it to a mechanic to play with. I'm disappointed. I'm sad. I'm now the proud owner of an F250 crew cab to pull my new 5th wheel trailer. Bye bye jeep friends. BTW Jeep did nothing to defend their reputation or stand behind their product. Damn italians!

2007 fullyloaded Limited with 5.7 Hemi
Mods include chrome mirrors, chrome bug deflector, fitted mud guards, KN filter, HD shocks and struts.

Sorry to hear
Selling to the mechanic may have been his plan all along....Maybe not, but unfortunately trusting people is difficult nowadays
