I'm almost at 179k and I'm thinking that if I keep my Jeep until it has 200k, we'll have to start the "200k Jeep Club" (unless it already exists).

I'm at 160k and in the process of replacing the cylinder head. I'm planning on gettin' rid of it as soon as I can tho and get a TJ. This thing is gonna nickel and dime me to death otherwise.

But are your guys driving 4's or 6's. I'm really curious what I can expect from my 4cyl. How soon I will need to think about a motor change? I have around 115,000 right now with no major problems.

'88 YJ only a few months old and stock, Big Fat Wish List though

I have a 6-cylinder, but I had to do a full rebuild at 89k miles because I sucked water into my air intake while wheelin'.

Ive got 215,000 miles on my 89 yj.. its got the original motor, but Ive swapped out the puegot tranny for a TF999 automatic, swapped out my T case for one with from an auto, and swapped out my rear D35 for a Ford 8.8, so I guess the only thing thts REALLY got 215,000 miles on it is the motor, but it still runs great. I expect it to hit 250,000 miles no problemo.

89 yj with tires and stuff like that.....
