My JK has 117K on it, it had 113K when I got it. The only things that have cropped up are a stock steering stabilizer that leaked and I think my U joint needs to be replaced. Other than that, the thing could be brand new. I might be the exception and not the rule, though.

I recently picked up a 2010 JKUR with 102k on the clock. It's not a daily driver for me. You couldn't tell it has high miles. Only 107 right now, needs a u joint up front. Everything else is solid.

At that mileage expect to be doing something each month, and when a month goes by that all you did was put fuel in it, say thank-you and take the wife out to dinner, the next time it happens do a MOD.
The point being you need to budget for repairs. water pump, belts, tune up, coolant change, all those sort of things that are not done in the first few years from new.

my rigs generally eventually get to the point, where I'm left to decide whether I'd rather pay the mechanic for continual wrenching or pay the bank for a new one. The mileage isn't an exact number for me, but the symbolic "100,000" remains from previous experience over the decades.

Once I even had a meticulously maintained Mercedes 300 Turbo Diesel break a valve chain link at 132,000 despite just getting out of a major tune & adjust everything.

I used to put up with the increasing and expected need for regular repairs in my various personal fleet.

I've got to the point where it's easier & more convenient to just include the banker as a sort of "utility" bill.

I have a 2009 JKU Rubi with 95,000 miles. I've had 1 u-joint go out and that's about it besides regular maintenance.

I have an '08 JKUR with 83,000 mi., 78,000 when I bought it, and there are no real mechanical issues. I had a minor leak with the front & rear differential gaskets & the water pump gasket. I changed out all of the fluids in the Jeep after I bought it and replaced the differential gaskets, water pump & gasket since it is fairly inexpensive. This gave me a known starting point for most of my scheduled maintenance. It has recently become my DD and I just make sure to check the oil on a regular basis.
