300K Club?

Does anyone have 300,000 miles on their ZJ? I'm rapidly approaching that mark with 298,050 miles with the original engine. I bought my Jeep new in 1993 and have been off-roading in nine states.

The highest that I was able to go on my ZJ was 195K.... baby miles compared to some of the ZJs that I have seen

Re: 300K Club?

My old blue Jeep has well over 300,000. I need to get a pic of it and put it up. It is a real trooper and the miles have been hard. It has had a tranny and is most likely going to need another one soon. It is slipping when cold. I can't really justify the price to replace it because the old Jeep isn't really worth it. I just give 1000 bucks for it years ago with the rearend out. I love it though and do not want to see it just go to waste. I guess when it breaks I will just keep fixing it lol. I have been toying with the idea of painting it OD green and putting a big white star on the hood.

Re: 300K Club?

Wow, 300k! That's freakin awesome! I don't have the attention span to keep a car around that long! Our zj had 140k when we sold it but only 50 or so of that was from us.

Re: 300K Club?

I only made 210,000 miles on my old ZJ, the engine was still in great shape but the rest of it wasnt worth the cost of replacing/rebuilding the tranny.

If your tranny does go out on the 5.9, one out of a 6cyl will not work.

You are right on the transfer case. I would love to do the swap on mine, but want to keep the 98 all original. What questions do you have?
