Floorboards rust out, hatch struts don't hold the hatch up, rear main seal,oil filter housing leaks, driver's seat breaks, doors sag and creak, CPS craps out, death wobble, etc. That's all I can think of right now, but there's many more that others will mention. Good luck with your Jeep and welcome to the forum.

hows your battery? if it starts with a jump and not on its own, i would guess a bad battery.

One of the big no start problems is the NSS,Neutral Saftey Switch.Put it in neutral and see if it starts,that will tell you if its going bad,also if you have no back up lights.
