I have close to 200K on my YJ.

At 105K, if it's been taken care of with normal 3K oil changes, then it's considered as being "Just Broken In" You should get 250K out of a properly maintained 4.0L.

YMMV (literally)

Almost 164k on my CJ5.

The only hope you have is to accept the fact that you are already dead. And the sooner you accept that, the sooner you will be able to function as a soldier is supposed to function, without mercy, without compassion, without remorse.

I have 235,000 on my 91 Cherokee with a 4.0 Inline 6

Runs great and has plenty of power...those inline 6's are a very durable motor.

I think that the 4.0 is a L6 and not a V6.

I have about 86K on my 99 Cherokee Classic 4.0L Got it used with 62K about 2.5 years ago.

102k on our old 1994 Grand Cherokee. New tranny, and everything else was just falling off (and this bird was well cared for). We sold it at 148k and got a new Malibu-- SWEET!!

I put the last 30k or so out of over 278,000 on Pthfndr's '89 Cherokee Laredo 4.0L straight six.

just rolled past 160K on my 95 YJ.

My '90 XJ 4.0 2 door sport has about a quarter million miles and still tests good on compression and leak-down on all cylinders. 4.0 Liter I-6 is bullet-proof!

The old girl recently got a digiflage paint job. I now have the only digitally camoed jeep around...lest I ain't never seen another one.

I know nothing about the v-6's save for what I have read. The V-6's in the Grand Cherokees are supposed to make really good boat anchors.

It's a jeep thing...you wouldn't understand.

Just under 60K on the g/f's '96
I swear she drives home from work in reverse!

Man. I feel like a baby. 52k on my 2000 Cherokee. Bought it new, all but 8 of those miles are mine.
Link Posted: 9/26/2005 12:32:12 AM EDT
I have 70-something thousand on my '95 YJ. It only had like 14k when I bought it in 2000. It had obviously just been sitting the majority of its life. The throttle was all gummed up from the fuel sitting in there.

I just changed the engine on my '89 after 240K miles.

It still ran but had a blown head gasket after I let it overheat.

I found a used engine with 80k miles on it for only $500 and figured it would be easier/better investment in time/money to swap engines than change the gasket.

I plan on driving it for at least another 100K.

My '01 Cherokee (4.0 Liter) has 117K on the clock and last week had its first unscheduled repair. The check engine light came on on the way to work, hooked up a code reader to it, reported that the #4 fuel injector was bad. $60 for a new one from Chrysler, a few minutes to install it and it runs like new.

My '83 CJ-7 has just under 200K on it.

125K 98 TJ

180,000 on my '79 CJ5.

90K on my 95 YJ - Never any problems with it. Change oil every 3000 and it runs like new. Only problems I had was with the catalytic converter. Since I live in an are of PA that does not have emission regs, the cat came off and a straight pipe went on. I also need to put on new axle snubbers.

<500 on my 05 Rubicon. No problems so far.

197,000 on my 94 Grand Cherokee.

If you are unsure of the maintenance performed prior to you purchasing the Jeep, go ahead and do both differentials, transfer case, air filter, and the tranmission oil and filter. For more info and more suggestions, go over to Jeepsunlimited and Jeepforum.

200k on my '95 Jeep GC Limited Orvis...but its a V8, not a wimpy V6

Well, the odometer reads 52,897. Not sure of the real mileage.

I have been told the speedo drive cable stopped working sometime around 1961-62.

I had 120K on my '90 Wrangler before 3rd gear went, and ultimately so did the Jeep. Wish I would have kept it and fixed it up.

1989 Cherokee 4.0L 279,850 never been a problem or had a problem. Change the oil regularly and you'll have no issues.

75,000 on my '96 JGC. Had to replace a radiator and pins in the front end so far. I'm pretty satisfied so far. I plan to drive it until it dies. The body and interior still look new.
