The serial number on my old jeep truck is 3406X10258. What year is it?

I couldn't find the exact year from your serial number only a year range which is 65-71.

Your serial # breaks down as follows.

34 = 1965 - '67: J-3000 4WD, Gladiator or 1968 - '71: J-4000 4WD, Gladiator
06 = 1965 - '70: Cab & Chassis, Truck or 1971: J-2500 Cab & Chassis, Truck (This means it did not come with a bed from the factory.)
X = 1965 - '67: 6000# GVW or 1968 - '70: 6000# GVW, also console shift Wagoneer (1414X) with exterior metal type feature panels or 1971: 6000# GVW, J-4600, also console shift Wagoneer (1414X) with exterior metal type feature
1 = 1965 - ' 71: Left Hand Drive

You should be able to narrow it down a bit more, however it's going to take comparing pictures of the various years within 65-71 and looking for changes to the style such as grills, headlights etc.

I have just bought a 2011 Jeep Wrangler with manual transmission. I will do about 10,000KM a year. What are the chances of having transmission problems on this model?

How long your transmission, or anything in your vehicle lasts depends largely upon how you use it, where you use it, and how well you maintain it. There are vehicles that develop chronic problems in certain areas regardless of what you do though. Mechanical failures are mostly due to sub standard alloys or slight mis-alignment of components and sub systems due to casting shifts or machine tool wear during manufacturing. Electronics failures generally happen because most high tech devices are obtained as outsources from the lowest bidder. That said, even the million dollar electronics used in spacecraft fail at times so there is no "perfect" part.
The factors above do not always spell failure but can work the other way and when a selection of parts actually matches better than normal that vehicle may go 400,000 miles with no problems at all.
Your anticipated mileage is low to average. Don't believe for a minute that you will require light service intervals. ALWAYS follow severe service plan!
Personally, I use full synthetic lubricants everywhere oil or grease is used in my vehicles. Synthetics are proven to give more wear protection, lower friction and do not break down chemically even if a service is forgotten or use is way past extreme. As such, I get way over 300K on every one of my vehicles. (5 Jeeps).
Last, use a shop that employs quality technicians. You do not need to have a dealer work on your vehicle in order to keep your warranty in force. There are often many Jeep specialty shops that not only service off road vehicles but use that experience in doing repairs on "grocery getters" In working on off-road vehicles they learn where all the design flaws are and how to defeat them.
The last factor unfortunately is luck... I've had customers that buy vehicles and for some reason they seem to last forever, regardless of manufacturer or how they maintain it. I also have had people that I'm certain they could buy a tank and somehow, it continually breaks.
I hope you aren't one of them!
Good luck with your new Jeep!!!!

I nead digrams on how to install a alternator on a jeep grand cherokee i have nevery installed a alternator i nead to know how to remove and install one

If you have never done this before, a good choice would be to subscribe to your vehicle's service manual at :
For about $20, you will get step by step instructions, and downloadable pictures.
It has always helped me , and is worth the investment. Lots better than a cheap shop manual.

Need to rewire entire jeep

If you want to rewire the vehicle, assuming that you will not be changing any systems, you can usually find complete new wiring harnesses from both the dealer and from aftermarket selllers like Quadratec and JC Witney.  Buying the complete wiring harnesses will be alot cheaper and less time consuming than trying to make them yourself.  These wire assemblies are just a plug and play deal, you disconnect a harness and replace it with the new one.  They may even include some instructions. If you need further assistance with custom wiring or diagnosis, I would recommend getting the service manual for the vehicle from the dealer or used ones from eBay ($30- $100).  The factory service manuals have complete wiring diagrams and schematics as well as full diagnostic information.  These service manuals are NOT like the ones found at your local parts store (Chilton or Haynes).  The factory service manuals are like complete blueprints for a car.
