Anything below 150k miles is low in my opinion...these 4.0's will go and go...as long as you keep oil in them....they will run.

Not unlikely at all to see 300k+

I have 250k on my 98. I just replaced the trans for one with 92k. Not because there was anything wrong with it but because I swapped it to 4wd.
