    My Jeep tripped the 300 mark today.:) I know, it's cheesy but have always tried to take care of everything I have owned and this is the first vehicle to make to this point so.

    I'm crying bullshite. No car that old has a 7 digit odometer. :toothy5:

    [I've always wondered why all cars don't have a 6+ digit odometer]

    Good going Aaron. A couple of years ago, I had a ten year old Cherokee, the 4 litre straight six. It only had about 125,000 on the clock when I sold it, and it still sounded, and drove, like new. Great car, although a bit narrow inside.

    My Toyota Tacoma flipped the 100k back in early summer. I plan on taking photos when it hits the 200k and 300k marks.

    The four litre is was a great engine and I know of several around here that have more miles than my 5.2.

    Gotta love Jeep! There is only one!

    I won't buy anything else. Some people complain about there reliability. I think they just don't take care of them. If you keep with the scheduled maintenance, they will drive forever.

    My 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with the 5.7 V8 had 200,000 on it when I finally blew the transmission. It was also my neglect that caused it. My 2005 Grand Cherokee right now just passed 74,000, and has never been in the shop for anything but routine maintenance.

    As a Jeep fan, I get all sentimental watching the below commercials...;)

    Thanks guys. I do my best to keep it serviced, use synthetic oil and K&N filters, air, oil, and fuel.

    Yup, 1976 CJ-7. I traded a 1975 CJ-5 for it.
