who's had the most mileage

do you think you have the most mileage?

i don't want google answers for how long a jeep engine (4.0 or 2.5) i just want what kind of distance you have travelled

holy hell! ... 350,000?! Have you been there for each and every mile? Thats crazy stuff, especially considering heeps arn't usually used for commercial or longdistance traveling. Did you put all them miles up there?

Good times, wish I could have been there for all my heep's miles, she is at 139 and I have only been around for 40K... At least I got to see her turn 100,000!!!

It had 90,000 when I bought it. It was a daily driver for many, many years. I never towed much so I drove it a few hours in any direction to wheel on weekends.

Mine's at 175,000 or so, and running very strong. It's had 3 owners before me I think, maybe 4, and was neglected and abused by 1 or 2 of them. Jeeps are damned impressive.

I have 477,714 miles on mine. Drove to the moon and back. Not a bad trip. Had to adjust the air/fuel mixture a little.

234,000 miles on the original 4.0. I've had two go over 200K at this point. I had one more that was only at around 90K when the frenchy transmission went and I got rid of it. Just did a tune up and still running strong and no oil leaks.

199,984 when i pulled into work this morning.

i bought it in rough shape at about 170,000
the only internal motor work it has had is a timing chain.

i rebuilt the trans not long after owning it, also swapped in an 8.8 because the D35 was making some nasty noises.
