Milestones.

I know this is not much in the Jeep world, but I almost missed a milestone today while picking up some mail at the post office. Good thing I looked down.

And a photo of the happy birthday Jeep as it sat with exactly 150,000 on the ticker:

I knew it was coming up too. I'd have been unhappy if I would have missed it.

 

So, anyone else have some mileage milestones?

 

Rob :cheers:

I had a 100k mile picture of my TJs odometer, but it disappeared. Doesn't really matter, age is at 110k now.

 

More impressive is my wife's Camry. When we got married last year, her car had less than 120k on it. It's now above 155k. Almost 40k miles in a year. No wonder it feels like I am always changing the oil in that damn thing.

Speedometer cable broke on my '86 around the 400,000 mile mark and it kept going for 2 years more (new owner) I replaced the motor last year after I got it back (my son took the old one to rebuild. ALL the pistons were cracked and it still ran!) I put an '84 motor in with only 75,000 miles (had a bad timing chain)

Scrapper buddy of mine picked up a 96 ZJ with a V8 last week. Tranny was out of it. I pulled what I thought I might use one day from it and while pilfering threw the P.O. junk I glaced down to see 314k on the odometer. :thumbsup:

 

Course I didnt take a picture.

I should be there pretty soon! Just passed over 191K last week and will be at 192.5K after the holidays. Once I finally get a place in MD and start moving my stuff from NJ to MD, it'll roll over 200K in no time.

 

Unfortunately, without access to a shop or a place to work on my XJ, it's beginning to feel like a vehicle with 191K miles on it. I need to replace all of the front ball joints and tie rod ends, control arm bushings, and shocks. That should tighten up the front end to make it feel "newer" again.
