My purpose of this thread is to make a reference point for new owners and current owners and maybe a database of :
mileage accomplished with X brand and weight of oil
(allot of oil debates around here)
common failure points per year and engine
(helps with a PREVENTATIVE maintenance schedule)
how does maintenance affect all of the above
over all lifespan of components
and so forth !

Allot of us guys that have been here for several years like to have reference points to send newbies to rather than posting the same info all the time.

PLEASE just simply follow the rules listed, If not please dont post !!
There in the very first post with an example following....

I'm looking for people who know there vehicle and have owned it for a long time or since new.

I would've added info on the oil used. However I'm the third owner, and have only had the privilege of putting around 500 miles on her.

I can say though, that it has been maintained on time with records for its whole life, from dealerships as well as multiple times from a Walmart. Which should go to say that as long as your jeep has good fresh oil on time you should have no worries reaching miles as high as mine.

Chris/wsar,
Is this what you're looking for??

2004 Laredo / 4.0 / Rotella T5 / 142,500mi
I am a 3 on the Maintenance scale, I want to know what's making every noise down there.

No major failures aside from the CPS leaving me stranded 3 blocks from my house 2 years ago.
I switched to T5 and now 95% of the lifter tick is gone. I also throw Seafoam in the crank case before every change just to release any stuck on crap.

139,000 miles
2002 4.0
242 Selec-Trac
Vari-lock axles swapped in at 135k. Redline 80W140 front and rear.
MOPAR trans and transfer case fluids. Filters and fluids changed on schedule.
Various 10W30 oils. Last was Rotella and now I'm using Chevron Supreme with the larger Wix filter.


Transmission failure at 36k. Could have just been a solenoid or valve body but the shop made more money "rebuilding" it.
Driver's window regulator at 60k
Electric fan solenoid at 75k
New isolators, BDS springs, shocks, & RSB mounts at 112k
Water pump bearing failed at 115k
Radiator cracked at 125k
Replaced rear main seal and valve cover gasket at 130k due to leaks
Front pinion seal blew out at 138k

I'm something above a 3 on maintenance, I can't have a failure happen on the way to work or if I'm out of town but I'm too cheap to buy a second commuter vehicle.

1999 4.0 Laredo
42RE
321k with regular oil changes usin 5W-30 or 10W-30 depending on the weather.
The original engine seized up @241K a few years ago. I replaced it with a used junkyard engine with an unknown number of miles on it.
I just had my shift solenoid and pressure govenor replaced last weekend - it was stuck in 3rd gear for the last 6 months.
While I had the jeep I've replaced the engine, radiator, water pump, fan relay, starter, power window regulator and tailights. I still have a small transmision fluid leak due to bad lines, and a little Death Wobble. I'm going to try an alignment since I know it is over due. I'd like to replace my shocks first but we'll see how the budget goes.
I consider myself a 3 on the maintenance side.
I brought the Jeep used in 2007 for 4 grand and it's been very dependable (other than the engine replcement)

2001 Stone White Limited, 4.0, 42re. 4" lift, swapped both axles and had to replace rad and water pump.
2nd owner at 118k sitting at just under 150k. Been running whatever oil is priced right, Always seem to be low on money when oil change time comes around every 3k miles. I've run Oreilly's, valvoline, and mobil 1 through it lol

Other than trans TCC solenoid it runs nearly perfect

YES
This is similar to what I have for all my vehicles. Nice job !
This is really the only way to TRULY know what you have or don't have.

QUOTE=billzcat1;wsar10 is right on point on this oil thread - as usual. Anyone reading this would be well-served taking his advice.
