That's awesome. I'm pretty confident I'll hit 400k in the next two years, especially if I decide to live at home in college. Then I would get about 30-40 miles a day easy.

Yeah but I thought he said the engine had been replaced at some point.

A few months ago i found a 91 xj on craigslist with a little over 5,000 miles on it. They were asking around $6,000 for it.

How would you only have 5-7k miles on a 91? I just don't get it.

LOL he is talking about mileage driven over the life of the jeep not miles per tank.

I have a set on my YJ, great tires but they do seem to wear pretty fast.

Now back on topic, I just bought a 98 XJ and rolled it past 250000 mi two weeks ago.
My brother bought this XJ with 125K on it and drove it 100 mi round trip everyday to work as a Jeep mechanic, its had excelent care and is neat as a pin inside and out (well, she could use some new seats, kinda sacked out from use). I will switch off between this and my YJ as a DD depending on weather and expect to see 350K pretty easy.
