Over 100,000 mile club

I have a GC with the 4.7 with 107k on the engine. The engine is still smooth, does not use any oil, and I a hoping will last to at least 200k. Does anyone have a 4.7 with 200,000 on it yet? Just curious to see how these engines are holding up. I have heard the inline 6 would last forever with many having over 300k on them.

I have a 01 JGC LTD with 4.7L with 160,000 original owner and does not use oil and runs smooth. Only items replaced in that time have been Starter, TPS and Power steering hoses

I've got 127k, but I've only put 1000 on it. Runs every bit as well as my old WJ which I bought new in 99.

Sisters 95 ZJ 4.0 250k Sold about a month ago, had 22 miles on it when she took delivery. My "old" 93 ZJ 145k 4.0 and my "new" 99 WJ about one more oil change and it will have 100k on it 4.0 also. All three with no engine issues, A/C on the other hand or the radiator or the death wobble, yea check mark on those!

I know you asked about the 4.7, but...

96 ZJ 4.0: 139,000
93 ZJ 5.2: 108,000

Sister's 97 ZJ 4.0: 105,000

And my gone (but not forgotten) 87 YJ 4.2: 225,000. I sold it to a guy who picked it up and drove it through 3 states back home.
