Jeep® vehicles are some of the most durable on the road, but this doesn’t mean that their parts will stay in pristine condition forever. And it’s important to know which Jeep parts tend to wear out the fastest so you can be proactive about making replacements.
Whether you only stay on the pavement or perhaps sometimes hit more rugged terrain, your tires routinely take a pounding. Generally you’ll get 50,000 to 60,000 miles out of a new set, but this is dependent on rotations. If you don’t rotate your tires, they will wear out a lot sooner.
Your braking system also puts in a lot of work day after day, and its components also wear down over time. The shoes and pads can typically hold up well for 30,000 to 40,000 miles, but a lot of stop-and-go driving may shrink that time frame. Rotors are usually good for around 50,000 miles.
Bulbs and Fuses
There are more bulbs in your Jeep than you probably realize, both inside and out, and they will burn out eventually. Your headlights in particular you should pay attention to and get a new bulb quickly when necessary. Fuses tend to last longer, but they too can burn out.
Thanks to factors like high usage, ice, and harsh rays from the sun, windshield wipers don’t often have a long lifespan. At most, you’ll probably only get a few years out of them before needing a new set.
