Man, I'm not even in the 100k mile club yet with my ZJ. You guys are definitely inspiration for keeping mine.

When you wish you had it to get people to move out of your way at the zoo.

When you are out riding the back country roads for that childhood fishing/swimming spot and you hear your wife say, "the road ends, why are you driving into the water?" Followed by, "people live back here?" Then a scream. Wife had never seen a road with creek crossing.

Mine is the same way. My front pass door lock only works when someone rides with me. I think my friends think I'm imagining it lol

94xxx currently. It'll probably be at least another year before I hit the 100k club. When I got mine, it had 65k on it. I daily drove it for a little over 2 years and got it up to a little over 90k while doing so. From there on out with it, my miles consist of highway miles getting to different off road parks and the associated off road miles. I occasionally take it to work or just for a drive, but with the price of petrol and the nagging of my wife about me driving it when I don't need to, that's pretty few and far between.
