I spoke too soon about the robustness of my Jeep.
I just got back from a two day trip with it to Vancouver to pick up some Firebird parts.
While there, the front track rod had to be replaced. It almost fell off and I didn't want to chance driving it back to replace it myself.
Darn ball joint on it didn't have a grease nipple and it was rusty dry and worn to the point where the axle was moving when turning the steering wheel and the wheels followed a few minutes later.
$280 for the part and one hour labour = $380.
The replacement has a grease nipple. :P
