How many miles are on your TJ??

I have a buddy who is on the fence about getting a TJ. He loves mine and how it looks but he is scared of anything over 100K. I told him any TJ with 100K is still just a pup if it was well maintained. I have just over 140K in my 2.5 now. I got my previous jeep (XJ) with 250K miles and the 4.0 and drove it until I traded it in with 300K on it. So what year/model/milage do you guys have? Maybe I can convince this guy..

I bought mine this fall with 64k. It is a 03 TJ Rubicon. When I was looking I found several with lower miles that might be something he can focus on.

Man, you guys have some lower milage than I thought. I paid just over $7K for my SE with 106K miles. Wanted something I could buy outright and fix easily. I don't see too much on CL around me with less than 100K miles. A few 4 cyl for $6000-$8000 and some 6 cyl for $10,000+.

My 03 Rubicon has 62K on it. The 4.0 is a warrior and will last a long time if taken care of. My son has a XJ with the 4.0 and it has 277K and still going strong....
