Has anyone hit over 100k miles yet?

I'm just curious, has anyone hit over 100k miles on their JK yet? I just hit 43,000 miles last week and this week I'm about to hit 44k.

And how many miles does everyone have? I'm curious. I know there's threads like this but it doesn't hurt to get a update

So, I'm at 43,800 miles and I had a few issues (like leaky top, etc). But that's it. I've rotated tires and changed oil every 5k.


I don't want your d**n lemons! What the hell are these?! Demand to see life's manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! WITH THE LEMONS! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that BURNS YOUR HOUSE DOWN!

2007 and just click over 32,000 miles. At the 7000 or so non-road trip miles I am putting on my Jeep every year, I'm currently projected to 100K miles in another 9+ years. Sooner if I make road trips. Realistically, I figure I have another 7 years before I hit 100K miles, unless I drive to another state with it, then it will be a little sooner.

just got my 08 with 30k on it. I drive 20 miles to and from work everyday.
calculated out = 40 miles a day - or 200 miles a week - or 9600 a year.

So that means I'll reach 100k in around 7.5 years... not bad I guess.

I do take a few road trips a year though.

I'm at ~17500, and bought it used with ~6300. I've had it for 9 months, this Wednesday. Also, about 5.5-6k of them were put on driving from Michigan to San Fran, CA and back...

Looks like I'm the winner in miles *cries* Half of my miles are beach driving, too. I'm curious to find someone who has over 60k+, to see how well the 3.8l holds up.

I like to see how well 3.8L holds up with 100K miles. I am thinking it will wear out more using 5W-25 liquid oil.

A lot of engines use 5w-25 oil now days though.
