I know it isn't a TJ but... I bought my 96 Grand Cherokee Limited (with the 4.0) 1 year old with 16k on it and I sold it in 2008 with over 280k. I went through 4 auto transmissions but never had any trouble with the motor. I do maintain my vehicles pretty well though :whistling:

Those engines are beasts! My boss has had one since he bought it brand new in 1990. The 4.0 has upwards of 200k miles and still runs very strong.


My 2.4l has 142k

'01 TJ 2.5 has 106k

My '99 WJ 4.0 had 150k, and the engine was great, but everything else on it was replaced or needed it (tranny, fan, relays, electronics, etc). It's why I switched to a TJ which doesnt have 80% of that crap.
