Of course, after almost 20 years, few would expect that a first generation 4 wheel drive SUV will last this long (engine/tranny/body/frame). But they did! Many are still going strong! Here is my 2005 subframe. Oh, my 05 engine/tranny are in good shape (aside from near misses--radiator failure and a few CELs late last year). Perseverance, vigilance, discipline and patience are the key to engine/tranny longevity--and we know that!. What's your secret in keeping the subframe of your first gen in good shape? Here are pictures of my 05 subframe. Thanks!
