130k with a starter replacement at around 80k (i think) and a water pump replacement at 115k. she's getting a bit tired and needs some help. Looking into cold air kits now.

How about 262,000 on a 97 that is still driven like a work truck?

We're at 265,000 with original motor in our 1991 Limited, driven every day and recently lifted. Runs and drives like a charm!

You check those valve cover bolts? They tend to unscrew themselves. Solved the leak on my yj and xj. oh and my 95 xj has 190,000 and my 89 yj has like 60,000 original miles.

157k on my 95 SE 2.5l 4x4 5 speed. Always something new to fix on it. It'll never see 300k due to rust. Maybe if I replace everthing from the windows down People can't seem to drive around here without road salt, they're wound so tight behind the wheel that it may kill them to drive slower.

231,170 miles on our 90 4.0 XJ and it still passes emissions test here in the pacific northwest. Went to pull a part and got another brain for it. Runs great now. Had to sniff out the problem. Had no spark and ECU smelled slightly burnt when I dropped it out from under the dash to have a look at it. Posted pics of it on Craigslist-Seattle under FREE STUFF. BAD ECU.
