Big ditto here. I'm just gonna keep running her till she's gone her last trip. Then probably put a new motor in XD Can't beat $2k for a "new"(reman) motor with a 2 yr warantee! Heck of a lot better to rebuild than dropping $10k+ for a newer vehicle which prob will need more in repairs shortly after.

Only 200K... I remember when my dads' 91 XJ went over 200. I bought our ZJ at 250, or somewhere around there. Now its at 298. It'll hit 300 in the next couple months! Only Major thing replaced was the tranny about 3K ago.

Have Fun, Check the Oil, and keep on going!
