48K on my 04 4.0 and running better now than it was 20K ago.
BUT, a good buddy of mine is at 199,546 on his 98 TJ and he drives the hell out of it as his DD and drives all over the state weekly.
04 Sahara, with a lift, some stuff, and a few things, on some 33's, blah, blah, blah.
A perpetual work in progress. Too much to list, not nearly enough to matter.
My RigRater Score: 387RRv1.0 with a BOA of 18.92 (and just how exactly is this going to help me over that big arse rock?) http://www.myjeepsite.com/nregas1 Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.

Im not surprised they last so long if you dont treat them roughly. I rarely take mine over 3500 rpms and havent ever gone much over 70mph yet. They may be bulletproof engines as some say, but babying mine the way I do I would be pissed if it didnt last extraordinarily.
I got through a clutch in 30k, 2 sets of tires in 25k, head gaskets and timing belt in 50k in my Subaru but I did drive that like I stole it and raced it too.

See that would piss me off too if I babied it and it puked early. My 97 2.5 runs great with 187k but I shift it really no higher than 4000 and dont really beat on it. Im not trying to kill the thing you know.

160k on my 97 TJ started making a ticking noise froze the 3rd hamster out of 4, blew him through the oil pan and took out the bottom of the block. Got the new engine in and it's almost ready to go however my 01 TJ got entirely too jelous that I was spending so much time under the 97 and decided that it didnt want the clutch to work on top of a bent output shaft! But, I love them both just like the clap and it stands true Just Empty Every Pocket! Lets bring back Jeep love in Nevada damit, Next time I wave at another Jeep owner wave back!!!!!!!! Sorry had to vent.
