The 200,000 Mile Club

1,000 miles to go on my bought new '07 crd. Don't take long trips any more, so it may be a while.

Any one else hit 200,000 miles yet?

Who'll be #1?

Good show!! Congratulations!!! I just turned over 100K, so it'll be at least another 10 years for me to get there, as little as I drive anymore. How is the chassis and drive train holding up?

242,000 miles on my 2005 with a 4.7. Power and drive train is all original with the exception of a rebuilt rear diff.

I'm really following this closely to find hope for my 5.7L. I'm at 114k right now, I drive her easy and with love (at least on the road) and maintain her more than most (3-4k full synth oil change, monthly corrosion inspection and treatment, and monthly engine bay cleaning and inspection, etc...) But it's still a HEMI motor. I'd love to get her past 200k

I sunk about $1100 into her in parts at about 190,000 miles. Redid the front suspension and rear shocks and had to rebuild the rear diff at that time. I'd say she was trouble free until about 160,000.
Since then:
Plugs
Starter
Pcv valve
Water pump (leaking seal)
EGR valve
Upper control arms
Lower ball joints
Bilsteins front and rear
Rear diff bearings
Front diff bushings
Tranny line repair
Blower Motor Resistor
Now needs:
LCA bushings
Strut bushings
Rear control arm bushings
Rear diff bearings
EGR valve (code p0404)
Mini cats (p0420)
Exhaust manifold studs
Valve cover gaskets
Rotors and pads
Pcv valvevalve
O2 sensors to help with gas mileage

Cost per mile is getting pricey but still cheaper than a payment.

I'm only at 128k right now, but I sure hope I make it well past 200k before a major repair. I took both my old XJ's to 300k, so I don't see a reason why a WK can't do it.

Good topic, but can you guys please specify what engine you are running ?

I only pay attention to the CRD chatter myself, but at least the original poster said he has a diesel . Totally different than gassers obviously .
I would like to see if a tune like GDE is installed with mods for longer life .

My 2 cents thanks.

At 183,000 miles; bought my jeep in Sept 2014, at 148,000 miles. Probably won't be too long till I pass 200,000.

Just put two new hubs on it, did all four ball joints a few months ago; replaced the rear axle lube (still gotta do the trans case and front axle) I'm planning on replacing both struts here pretty quick too. Everything else looks pretty good.

I'm pretty sure I need to replace the spring isolators in the rear and I wanna upgrade the trac bar. Not real interested in building a heavy wheeling rig, but the more I upgrade the suspension components and other parts the longer it will last and stronger it will be.

Think all that adds to the longevity of my jeep. I've had many compliments the jeep, most people can't believe it has 180k miles on it. Not real familiar with the 4.7L, but so far, i've been very impressed with it. I'm hoping that motor lasts long past the body does (which is, hopefully, a long *** time)

Good call. Some have posted their engine size/type, either in their Public Profile or in their signature. Mine is in my Profile and kind of in my signature...it is a 5.7 Hemi. I also think most of the engines will easily go 200K or more, if given reasonable care. Personally, I am more interested in the rest of the drive train, chassis components, HVAC system, Audio system, and interior trim.

Everything on mine is pretty much still like new, no rattles, squeaks, drive train noises or vibratiions. Only real problem I am having is with the inside driver's door handle which flops around like a wet noodle. It still works though as long as I am easy with it. Won't fix it until it breaks...but it's been like this for several years now and hasn't gotten any worse.

As requested:

I have a 4.7 in mine with 162k on it. Regular 5k oil change intervals and change my other fluids in the 30-50k range with nothing but synthetic. She runs great, I run the 91performance SCT and run nothing but 92octane in her. Runs great

I just bought my 2007 4.7 laredo a few weeks ago at 191k. I drive 120 miles a day so, Ill soon hit the 200k mark.

Right now, everything seems pretty solid. I have a few things I know need to be/want to get done. The front and rear shocks and water pump I plan to replace since its so cheap to do from rock auto. Not sure if its running synthetic or not, but it will be soon.

Also not sure about trans or diff servicing but everything seems smooth and the quad trac def works. The paint is in good shape except for right in front of the sunroof. All of the electronic things work and it runs super quiet.

Overall, it seems pretty d*** solid for a car with that many miles on it. I am hoping it will make it another 100k!
