124K, almost 125. Sagging headliner, a/c held a charge for about 3 weeks, blower motor only works on high (what's the fix for this?), marks it's parking place with little drips. Looking for some 155 710 injectors to try that swap before my next trip to NC...could use the improved fuel mileage.

220,000 something miles nothing major everything is there and working most of the time. Not in the best shape. Sometimes the blower on high cuts out all you have to do is punch the dash and its back on.Im sure its a loose connection. Before I swapped my axles out she would mark her territory with little drips from both the front and rear pinion seals. Very easy to tell where I had parked...lol Oh yeah and the crap vic likes to not work when you try to put it back into 2wd from 4x4 just goes out until you restart the jeep then it says your in 2wd. Gotta love it...

98 5.9 with only 70,000. That's right 70,000 original miles. 3.5" lift. Had to fix the antenna, seat heaters and sunroof when I bought it. Still has a leak in the air conditioning and sloppy stearing box.

93 4.0 with 160k.... lots of little things wrong but have most of the parts I need. Main thing is the blower is getting loud and locks up on 1 or 2 setting. AC is super cold though so it gets uncomfortable running it at speed 3 in recirc mode. lately, it's been sputtering so I have to diagnose that... thinking perhaps time for a new crank position sensor. Rear wiper works but I can hear it going out.

98 5.9 with 122k... PO drilled hole for front trackbar to compensate for 3.5" lift. Axle is off center by around 1/2" hence my recent sig. NO AC, but working on that, gonna pressurize it today and see if it holds. Tranny shifts a bit odd and they did a poor job of sealing the pan so I'm gonna change the filter and fluid out. I think the VC is shot but I'll live with it as I'm going to convert to a 242 or 231. Other issues are cosmetic but I couldn't care less - she's gonna get beaten anyway.

Purchased my 95' zj for 300$ nearly five years ago....po wanted the jeep that wouldnt start out if their driveway. Brought cash and a new battery, it fired right up and i drove it home with 175k. New radiator, fluids changed, tires, brakes. Drove it for 2-3 years without sticking anymore into it until i got bored one day and decided to pull the 4.0 for a redo. 219k now and still love it...put a 99' intake on, dodge neon injectors, exhaust upgrade. On a good roadtrip going strictly 55-60 im averaging 20-21mpg with 31's and no gears ....still to do: fix rear wiper motor, pass side window switch, 8.8 rear with matching gears and locker for front, all in time.

'96, 4.0 110K

AC doesn't work. Rear end has been making noise for the last 25K, motor has valve? noise on start-up.

Wouldn't give it up, ever.

190,000 mi. 98' 4.0 laredo 4x4. Engine runs great, had front axle and diff replaced. Steering gear just replaced. The drivers master window/llock control is out so I can only roll down 1 window(front passenger) from its control.
Love it to pieces.

96' 4.0 Laredo 4x4, 114k.

Just a bunch of minor stuff...

Replaced the following when I got it at 112k:

Oil pressure switch - needle fluctuation all the way down to zero.
Headlight dimmer pod - Gauge/panel lights dim/fluctuating.
Head unit - FM radio stopped working.
Catalytic converter - rattling.
Liftgate supports
Rear hatch supports
Pass side parking and turn signal lamps - broken in accident.

Sounds like it needs rear wheel bearings.
