I'm almost there, got about 99,300 miles on my 2005 WK Limited w/Hemi, I just bought it a few months ago at 95,649 miles. I've replaced all rotors and pads with Stillens and K&N air intake and changed all of the fluids except an oil change which is definitely next. I'm going to clean it up (I've already clayed, compounded, polished and waxed the paint, it looks brand new!!!) and mod it up little by little.

2005 GC Limited w/Hemi 101,000 with maintenance logs from the dealer. Looks brand new *shrug* I now have 103,000 on it. Why is 100K club special...LOL Bought the vehicle as a toy...but I don't drive much...so miles will not be put on it, and most will be dirt. 3 vehicles to pick from, 4 counting the motorcycle so miles can be spread out. Typically drive the Focus for gas savings....

Because in the past a Grand getting to 100k was something special....

Really!!! My bro bought a WJ with 130K miles and was not worried one bit. He had owned a normal Cherokee and I think he said he has like 200K when he sold it and the guy he sold it still still has it with over 300K *shrug*

It all depends on how you take care of things. Sure some wear items will need replaced but that is common with ALL vehicles.

I had 247,000+ miles on my 01' WJ with no major replacements/issues before I traded it in. I'm only at 47k on the WK so far....lol.

119k on my '05. Besides lift and mods, I've replaced, egr, brakes, rotors, one brake caliper bracket(due to completely seized slide), struts, shocks(all blown), water pump, thermostat, and all 4 ball joints(prior to JBA UCA's).

Granted the previous owner didn't take very good care of the jeep at all. So far one of my favorite jeeps ive owned.

I think if the owners do the recommended preventitive maintenance, the issues related to the current generation are related to the electronics. But that is just my opinion.

Just hit it!!! I got it at 95,649 and it's been well taken care of by the previous owner. Before I bought it he replaced the EGR valve, transmission cooler line, brake pads and rotors twice, spark plugs and changed oil every 4000 miles. I've upgraded the brakes to Stillen rotors and pads, changed all fluids, cleaned the throttle body and just switched over to Valvoline Synpower synthetic oil last weekend. This weekend I'm going to change the spark plugs, clean the battery terminals up, change the serpentine belt, change the pcv valve and possibly detail the engine . That's the short list haha.
