312k on my 89 with just oil pump issue and needed resealed. Ive seen one gettin scrapped the other day by the original owner with 484k on it. You could look clean through from side to side on the rear due to rust but the 4.0 started and ran with just a little upper end tap. The owner said he used Lucas at every change and had it sense 87.

201,000mi on my 93 Cherokee. A little bit of blow-by, and it's not starting at the moment. But when it starts, it runs really good!

The techs freak out when I get an oil change. It was a city emergency response vehicle, and they maintained it very well. It is bright orange, so it is pretty conspicous. I have had 3 tj's in the past, and I am addicted to the Straight 6, super reliable, and super cool engine.

I've am very close to 300,000 miles on mine, and in the process of replacing the head gasket now. It runs great, lots of power still and passed DEQ two years ago easily.

I have 160000 on mine, and my coworker, friend has almost 300000 on his. We are delivery guys and usually run up a 1000 a week. We never have reliability issues!
