Any JKs with 200k Miles?

With under 100k miles my 2011 JK is going to need a transmission. See my JK Check Engine at 96k for details...

My plan it to have a new transmission installed and keep it. The mechanic said the engine is fine and should have no problems making it to 200k miles.

Are there any JKs here with 200k miles? What were the cost form 100k to 200k?

Just about, my 08 is at 195,000 and my dad's 08 is at 198,000. It is quite a rarity though, took mine to a dealer and they were astounded to see one with such high mileage.

Getting there - I am just over 150,000 and all is well. Mine is an 08, bought when they first came out in 07. So far, I have a total of just over 4K invested, which went for new shocks, tires, brakes (front and rear), all fluids flushed, a new battery, engine once over, and a few cosmetic mods (new paint, hood vent, and the ever popular, and dreaded 'Angry Bird' grill). I have no doubt it will hit 200,000.

Just searching on Cars.com I can find a handful for sale with 200,000+ on the clock. Mostly 2007/2008 models

Edit---

The one with the most miles is a 2008 Unlimited X with 255,866 on it...for 11,711

That would make since, as most folks don't drive anywhere near 20k miles a year.

It will be nice to see what sort of longevity people get out of the penestar engine, but we've got a few years to go before they start hitting the big numbers.

There is a sketchy used dealership in my town that has used JKs with 200k+ fairly often. Would I buy one? No.

My wife and I both normally drive between 20k and 30k per year.

I have a 2011 with 107k on it and she has a 2014 with about 75k on it.

Good Lord willing, we'll both hit 200k in the next few years.

I'm at 109k and all seems well except for a quart of oil every 1500-2000 miles. I just saw one from FB that was traded in at 215k. Mine seems to run better at 109k than when I got it at 53k.

At 107k, my 2011 doesn't use or leak a drop of oil... knock on wood.

I simply can't imagine owning any vehicle with +200K miles and a monthly payment. Even a Toyota 4Runner would be out of the question.

Yeah, at 100k, it's questionable, but at 200k, you're almost guaranteed to have major problems before it's paid off.

Daily driver here with over 20k miles a year. She's had her fits and tantrums but hasn't left me stranded. Would like to see some at 250k-300k and see what we can really get out of them.

Currently have a 2008 Sahara JKU with 220,000 miles. It was my wife's until recently, now mine. She had it serviced regularly and repaired as needed. It is in perfect shape except the catalytic converter just went out. It has no leaks and uses no oil between changes. It has been a great vehicle in the 7 years we have had it. I am in the process of getting off road tires and monsta lining it.

My neighbors '07 has 212K and bought it new. He had the heater core replaced a couple of years ago and the radiator started leaking last week.



My '16 has 50K and I hope to get well over 200K. (fingers crossed)

2013, approaching 100K fast. I got it in Feb. with 82K on it already. I put on about 20K per year, so I'll definitely be hitting the 200K mark before I get to get myself a brand new one.
