My '89 with a 4.2 is something of a Frankenjeep as it a rebuilt title and the seller said the motor was rebuilt, but didn't know when (by a PO). But other than the motor question the rest of the whole Jeep seems to be all the original vehicle including the AX15 gearbox.

189,000+ on it and all it needs right now are a couple of fresh synchro rings in the transmsission. Runs good when the carb is right (Motorcraft sitting in the garage for the next time the Carter gives me grief) and pulls well up into expressway speeds.

My 95 Town Car just failed the climb to 200K miles at almost the same mileage. This thread encourages me to take the Jeep to that milestone

90 YJ 220K. Original engine and tranny. Has the Carter BBD and it runs great. No lifter ticking and no engine knocking (after I replaced the timing chain).

We recently received two new old Jeep YJs & one shows 201,867 on the Odometer & it seems to run good but we will know more when they are delivered soon. The other one only has 99,864 showing.

8 years later has brought the grand total to 180k. The 258 is long gone though, put a 99 4.0 in it about 5 years ago and the original AX-15 puked out about a month after I posted that.
There's a lot of former frequent posters in the beginning of this thread that I haven't seen in a long time.
