Replace your electric fan relay switch as preventative maintenance and put a clutch fan on (if it doesn't already have one)...and you could possibly get 250-300K out of it.

is this unusual?
My 1999 WJ 4.7L V8 Limited 4X4 has 262300 on the clock...
I just bought it a month ago, I replaced the waterpump (was original) spark plugs (removed OE spec Champions installed NGKs), replaced a rear axle bearing/seal (outboard),new shocks(Sensen), new front brakes, new tires, purged and recharged A/C, and installed a new IAC valve. It runs great and shifts smooth. As far as I know it is the original drivetrain.
The dual CV style front driveshaft shelled out several thousand miles ago and was removed. I'll be replacing it with a dual U-joint style soon
I am a 1-2 on the maintenance scale
