2001 WJ 4.0 Laredo...3rd owner. Bought it for $1,500.00 with 224,000 miles. Currently has 265,000 miles. I had to replace the radiator, fan and fan relay. Fan created havoc as the polarity was backwards. Swapped out 7 radiators in a month and a half and 8 relays in 2 weeks, before FINALLY finding the issue. Lesson learned? Don't trust aftermarket parts.
Just replaced the passenger CV axle shaft and have brand new rear upper control arm and ball joint waiting for a nice day to be installed.
Upgraded quite a few items...
- factory foglights, multi-function switch, and relay.
- factory auto-dimming mirror.
- luminescent gauges.
-'03 grille painted black (plasti-dip) with chrome rings
-'04 Overland rock rails
-Jeep brand push bar
-Jeep brand bug deflector
-'10 Wrangler Unlimited X steel 5-stars (plasti-dipped black)

Driving a 12 year old vehicle with really high mileage and LOVING it!

2003 4.7 Limited. 155,000 miles.
Always Mobil 1.
Maintenance #2.
No engine or drive train problems. Some valve noise on cold start but it goes away on warm up.
Two replacements of the stupid blend doors, one under warrantee, one at 125,000.
One replacement of AC compressor, lots of hard use, I live in AZ.
Three replacements of the stupid power windows drive system.
The usual brake pad and disc services.
Lots of hard off-road use on the old mining "roads" of Arizona.
Total replacement of the loose stock low ground clearance suspension system with a IRO 4" long arm lift front and rear. Great lift kit! Replaced front drive shaft while everything was taken apart. Worn out suspension bushings were my excuse to do this :-) 32" Goodyear SilentArmor tires. Great tires, quiet on highway, adequate traction and Kevlar toughness off road. New rear bumper spare tire carrier because big tires don't fit inside anymore. Now it's an off road beast but still a civilized daily driver. Wife's only complaint is that it's "higher".
Right now, knock on wood, runs like a new car. No complaints, no desire to replace. Great car.

209,00 on our 4.0.
The wife bought it 10 years ago, put 185,000 miles on it. I took it over after I bought her the escape. Put 3,000 on it in 2 months. Dead nuts reliable. In ten years, I've put 5 radiators in it, just replaced the factory water pump 4 months ago, 1 cooling fan and a transfer case ( wife's fault, she ran over a stump and tore it off).
It needs a rebuild badly. Very worn wrist pins. Sounds like an old detroit on a cold morning. Still runs good though, so screw it. Gonna drive it until it breaks something.
