Re: How long you keeping your jeep

My current plans are to keep it forever unless they do make a 2012 SRT8 version then I may be tempted to upgrade after this one is paid off.

Re: How long you keeping your jeep

After scaring myself with the thought of selling my jeep and the reality that my fiance wants a truck, the plan is to keep the jeep as the family vehicle, the truck as the Wifes DD/ work vehicle for the horse, and then when my jeep becomes less in value and over 150k miles on it, get a new family suv (hopefully a new jeep GC, And my WK will become my new trail rig/wheeling build.

edti: Ive had many cherokees in the past, all with the 4.0 I6, an 87 that i put to rest at 250k, my 94 that is still on the road with over 200k miles, my 95 that has 175k miles, my 98 that had 125k miles, my ex's xj that had 160k miles RIP (it was a rust bucket) my friends 94 ZJ with 213k miles, my old TJ with 100k miles, etc, they run forever.

The 2.8 was a POS GM engine that only lasted until the 4.0 came out.

Re: How long you keeping your jeep

at least 3 years...has the lifetime powertrian and I only owe $16K on it. get wheels in 6 months to a year and drive it through the bumper to bumper warranty (has 7100 miles, warranty through 12/2011) and who knows maybe keep it forever haha

Frank - E55 all the way; get an 05+ model year...you will not regret it

Re: How long you keeping your jeep

till they pry my cold hard fingers from the steering wheel..........







I get attached to things. sometimes for too long to my detriment!
Lifetime Powertrain Warranty. I bought another warranty from the stealer for lifetime on everything else for 900. so who knows!
