Curious to see how many miles are on your 4.0's and at what point if any have you became worried about Engine/Transmission/Transfer Case problems? Im just wondering what or where you guys are at mileage wise, I've put up the idea of getting a WK for a few months now. Seeing some pretty clean low mileage (50-70k miles) WKs going for 15-16k (06-07s).
I just love my WJ, but this is the most miles I have ever had on a vehicle of any kind and im just worried about it I guess. I recently had a 99 Firebird and the motor went and basically left me stranded for the last 2 months of college and made my life a living hell. Now that im working again I just want something that I can depend on.
Anyone have any tips for longevity? I've seen ZJs go well over 200k miles with no issues on 4.0s and had a friend who put 240k. I have no prior service records (bought my WJ with 126k) im now sitting pretty at 137k about a year later, thinking about having the trans serviced just for giggles.
I don't wheel much, I do a few old mining roads in the mountains when I visit family / friends but thats it. Im mostly doing a lot of stop and go traffic driving every morning to work coming home is a smooth sail interstate driving. Ive held off on modding the jeep with a lift and tires because of this reason I don't wanna spend 1500+ on tires and a small lift and have the trans go out on me or the motor go.
