Been on the road most of the week. It's turned into a 2,000 mile week for work so plenty of time to think while rolling through the sandhills. I appreciate everyone's input. Looks like I am already doing most of your suggestions for those of you running higher milage crd's. We're gonna see how far she can go ......
IMO, a nice indicator of your engines life expectancy is to get your oil analyzed for 2 oil changes in a row. I sent mine to Blackstone labs to get a baseline value for the Jeep. They also give you an indication how your values are compared to other engines. Then send the oil in again at the next oil change and see the difference in metallic particles especially. For me, I had very low metal particles in both results with my 2nd oil change slightly better than the first, so I knew that my engine isn't degrading at any noticeable rate.

The engine is by far the most expensive item but we know very little about what is happening inside. We change the oil once a year and hope all is well.
Blackstone look a quality outfit.
