4.0L Staying Power

I've got a 1997 Cherokee with the 4.0L and just reached 197,000 miles. This is my daily driver and I've taken great care of this vehicle over the years. I keep on top of fluids and filters and have signed my vehicle up online at MeMaintain.com > Home to remind me about various maintenance items. I think this engine is good to at least 300K miles. Anyone else got some high miles on their original 4.0L?

there are some threads on here with some crazy miles...not sure how many other people will post to this one since there are so many.....bottom line 250-300K is "normal".

My '04 Sport has 160K+ with no issues.

94 @ 241k, runs like a champ.
