How many miles does your wrangler have

I'm 16 and looking to sell my current car to get a wrangler but its expensive for 2002+ as my budget is 8000. They also have like 130k miles or more so i'm curious how many miles your wrangler has and any suggestions about insurance? I just got a speeding ticket today too

Going on 111,000 on my LJ and still running strong. My dad's 98 TJ has 125,000 on it and same story. The TJ 4.0 will go up to 350,000+ if taken care of throughout its life.

Speeding ticket? See if you can take the drivers safety class and plead to Improper Equipment charge for no insurance points

I'm assuming with my 33's throwing off my odometer I should actually be at about 75,000 miles right now.

Trank, How close are you to Strongsville Ohio?

This is a steal of a Jeep

http://cleveland.craigslist.org/cto/4355489041.html

Says 7900 at the top of listing but goes on to say he wants 6500. I would be all over that. Especially since he already did the gears.

59,450 miles on my 04 tj, I know that's not significant but the only part ever replaced under that hood were the 02 sensors, and Toyota and Honda think they're reliable, psshhhhh

I think they have a thread on this already with TONS of replies.

Just to add, 360k. So, they last a good while.

16 and a speeding ticket already, if any one of my 4 children got a speeding ticket at your age your driving privileges would be revoked in my house if I was paying to support you.

Just bought my third jeep 2weeks 05 Rocky Mountain edition with 46k. Pretty much brand new. I know I will get 200k plus out of it. My friend has a 97 4.0 manual with over 280k on it still runs strong and sees some trail time.

Just turned 50,000 on my 2004 4.0l.
It's not a kid anymore.
The motor is all stock. Never one problem.
Change the fluids regularly, add gas, and go.
