100,500 miles. Has some residual oil leaks. Not enough to "use" oil though. Just enough to make the engine look dirty.
Needs:
Bushings
Shocks
Brakes
Headliner
Driver Seat
Repainted Driver Door
And quite a bit more.

Still not bad considering shes been rode hard and hung up wet by the previous owner...

1993 grand Wagoneer zj. (Yes a woody) 231,000 miles. Trans went out twice but I still kept fixing it. The best seats I've sat myself in. They're comparable to sitting on a tray of biscuits. I'm keeping it forever and eventually replacing that crappy fake wood with some real marine grade wood!

95, 169,000. Just hit it on the way to work. Only thing wrong is the rear main has a slight leak for the 5th time in it's life and the stupid flickering check engine light with no codes thrown. I fix things instantly.

201,900 miles. It did have the sagging driver's door, but fix that today. Has what I would call a class 1 leak (wet with oil. but no drop formation and no drops on ground) at the back of the engine. Suspiciously shiny transmission and x-fer case for an 18 year old vehicle. Couple of tears in the seats... a scratch on the door.

I'd say I've gotten off lucky thus far.

93 4.0, 226000+, going around right turns there seems to be some rubbing (not tire) metal sound from drivers side. Ordered and have new front struts, replaced rear shocks. Missing lug passenger side rear. Replaced muffler, valve cover gasket, RF steering knuckle, track bar replaced. A/C doesn't work, fills up, gets ice cold, by end of the day its all leaked out from somewhere. No idea how to fix. Steering is very loose, no play, just very loose and ride is like riding in a shopping cart. Also speedo doesn't work. It goes backwards and kinda hovers @ 80 miles phr. Replaced plastic track slides in drivers window with sliding door teflon rollers (EXCELLENT FIX). Also needs Pitman arm I think. I'd guess (hope not) ball joints replaced, upper/lower control arm bushings. Oh, oil filter adapter leaks like a pig. Bought T60, gasket and seal, replaced gasket and fill plug on rear diff and Trans oil and filter replaced. Vehicle smokes like a blue-ish (oil burning smell) when running... No clue what that could be.

Also, rear bumper came off when someone drug me out of a snow bank. Now I notice the brackets aren't bolted on with a "regular bolt" I suppose some PB blast and a pair of vice grips will get the brackets off. Still need a bumper and brackets.

If anyone cares to address this Daily Driver (not lifted or used as off road at all).

183k on mine. needs front pinion bearing, rear pinion seal leaks a bit, head lights no longer work on auto, dash lights Dim on their own, rattles, headliner is falling, drivers door panel is broken, rear hatch is rusting, has dents, dings and scratches everywhere.

pinion bearing will be fixed shortly with the addition of a HP30, and rear pinion seal will be replaces soon as well, but the rest i live with, and as long as it still gets me from point A to B it will continue to.

99,000 on my 98 limited. Only had it a month but I've put over 1000 miles on it. Since I've owned it I've done sway bar bushings, tie rod ends, track bar bushings and drag link ends. Replaced a leaking transmission pan and gasket but found i have a small leak from the fitting for the ATF cooler lines. Still needs a belt tensioner and a belt. Center console lid is broken off. I have some kind of roaring noise from the front end, hoping its wheel bearings and not the pinion bearing. If it needs a pinion bearing its gonna get a hi pinion dana 30 swap. Also needs the control arm bushings but they're just a bit clunky, no DW yet. Really loving it though. Saving up for WJ steering/brakes and some nicer shocks.

98 limited 5.2. 1655xx on it. Vc is bad, Trans shifts funny somtimes but rarely slips only in the morning very rarely if I don't let it warm up some. Squeaky belt, had replace driver side power seat, drivers side heated seat doesn't work. Think it was a solenoid for the converter lockup that went bad when my brother drove it to ga. More less nothing that bothers me other than not having a properly functioning transfer case and no lift lol.
