jeepnjeep is just really nice
Re: How long you keeping your jeep

Just like my past two Jeeps, I'll keep it untill it starts nickel and diming me to death. My '86 Cherokee had around 150,000 miles on it and with the crappy 2.8 V6 and some other problems it was time. Got my '93 ZJ, lifted it and wheeled the hell out of it for 160,000 miles. I was getting electrical glitches and the suspension was making all sorts of noises due to every bushing being worn out from a lot of mud and dirt.
I hope this one lasts as long or longer since I don't off road as much any more.

I plan on trading mine for a lightly used 2011 SRT8 in 2013.

Re: How long you keeping your jeep

Since I have been 16 I have never kept the same vehicle for over 2 years. But I like Jeeps, and as long as it keeps serving me, I will keep it. I may make it an off road machine after a few years.
