some insight would be awesome!

This is still one of my first posts, but I've been reading the forum for little while now.

My 97 sport has about 181,000 miles on it ( 4.o with 5 speed ) and it still runs very well (knock on wood). Its basically a DD but I havent put many miles on it since I've had it- I'm a college student (maybe about 5,000 a year). I dont drive it hard and sadly only the very occasional off roading-mostly at the family camp for some fun during the summer. 4wd gets its use in the winter up here tho.
I live in upstate ny so the winters with all of the salt and sand are getting to the frame and undercarraige. I've rustoleumed the underside/frame a couple of times but the rust still manages to come through after each winter.

I guess my question is- How much longer would anyone say this jeep will keep going strong? By the way I absolutely love my Jeep and will most definitly continue to buy wranglers

My guess is that the jeep will rot out before it blows as long as you maintain it well you should be fine. 4.0's are amazing!
