Who Has The Most Miles On This Forum?
Im going out to buy a 1995 YJ Wrangler and it has 207,000 Miles.

Now to me, it sounds like a lot, but its just a project car for me, somthing to take to the beach every now and again and just enjoy what its worth. (900$) to be exact.

Is this a rediculous amount of miles and the truck is only going to last me a month and its going to break down? Any good mainteince thatll help me?

Tips are always good! Thanks for your help!

In Your Repost, Please Include the Amount of miles you have and the year of your jeep!

2.5 89 jeep wrangler with 196,004 original miles and no problems what so ever with the moter. Moter wont let u down, but cant say that about the drivetrian, trans,trasfercase,axles

My YJ has 209,000 but not the original motor. The original motor had 199,000. I've had my AMC 360 in a Wagoneer, a CJ-5, a CJ-7 and now my YJ. It was rebuilt at 150,000
miles but has over 120,000 miles on it since the last rebuild and it runs like a top.

ashevilleyjmike 03-02-2010 02:36 PM

1992 YJ with 200,211 miles, original 2.5 motor.

Bobthegod 03-02-2010 02:47 PM

I feel like a a 99 TJ with 105,000. Runs strong shift great no noise I hope to get 200+ or more. But at about 3-400 miles month it'll take forever.

hammer 03-02-2010 05:19 PM

Ive got one with 227.000 miles and it runs good sounds a little rough
but runs good and doesnt leak any oil. Oh its a 2.5

Pylonpounder 03-02-2010 06:26 PM

I have 211K+ miles, 2.5L 5 speed, and it runs strong.

drg 03-02-2010 06:39 PM

98 tj 4.0 208,000 and still running great, on my 2nd trans, but my fault!:banghead:

aenima540 03-02-2010 06:49 PM

94 YJ with just over 189,000, original motor

stanger351 03-02-2010 07:24 PM

I get what you're saying, but don't over look things like rust and leaky stuff (trans, diffs, t-case). '95 was first year of galvanized frame and body for YJ so hopefully its pretty solid. For $900 though, I'd expect a few problems...but who knows!

Lando 03-02-2010 07:43 PM

1995 4.0 L with 117,000 still running good, knock on wood! If it has a solid body and frame, it's easily worth $900 to me. You would be hard pressed to find a solid jeep without an engine for that price.

trumsey07 03-02-2010 08:25 PM

1995 207,000 miles on orig. 4.0

stuartl89 03-02-2010 09:13 PM

89PBR96 03-04-2010 10:57 AM

94 Sahara with 140+

GrBeast001 03-04-2010 03:18 PM

ive got 226,XXX on 92 6cyl 5spd. It had the speedo disconnected a couple years back by the previous owner, guessing they didnt feel like extending the line after the lift. So in actuality its prob more like 250,000.

Why was it in Iceland?

Stefan 03-04-2010 03:46 PM

oh and...97 TJ 4.0 with 110,470 miles

I know a guy that used to drag race (put the engine through hell) his cherokee with a I6 4.0. He had his cherokee til it had 310,000 miles on it...sold it two years ago to his brother, and it still runs fine.

dbt381 03-04-2010 09:38 PM

91 YJ 155451

Stefan 03-05-2010 12:28 AM

A friend of mine has an old chevy blazer that has a 6 digit analog mileage started over at 0 last year, which means 1 million miles
His Blazer was a company travel car for some business man before he bought it...the thing is now a COMPLETE PIECE OF SHIT
excuse my language.
The engine's basically been rebuilt with all the parts put into it
