Who has over 200,000 on a daily driver?


Recommended Posts

I don't DD my 225,000 mile '91 but I could. It has no problem with doing 400 mile round trip parts runs or driving a couple of hundred miles going to and from a park including 6 hours or so of wheeling. Took the

valve cover off to replace the gasket and it looked new under there. Great oil pressure.

1988 short bed 4x4 4.0 auto with 309,000. I've had it 3 years, got it because the body is in good shape. It drives great and I commute to work 32mi r/t to keep miles off my 2014 Rubicon. I've replaced quite a bit of original parts. I love it but it's not easy having 2 vehicles in the city (baltimore) and my insurance is over $400 a year.

My dd zj has 203k on it, xj has 280k. Before that, my first truck, a '90 Chevy silverado with the 5.7 had 38X,XXX miles on it when I sold it. All of which are/have been my dd and/or only vehicle. Mj has an unknown amount of miles on a questionable 2.8 with the sloppiest transmission in the Midwest, a leaking slave cylinder that can't be removed without a torch, and door gaps you can stick your hand through, and I dd'd it for a year before getting the zj

I would love to pay $400 a year for insurance. I pay $90 a month just for my mj.

My '92 has 231K on the odometer.  It passed Colorado emissions, runs 40+psi oil pressure above idle, and uses a qt. of Dino oil about every 1,800mi.  So far it doesn't mark its spot in the garage since the valve cvr gasket was replaced.  The only issue is a recently ticking lifter at idle.  Gonna try a BG oil additive to see if it'll clean the varnish out of the offending bugger.  Fingers crossed. :thumbsup:

I've got about 250,000 miles (over 400,000 km) on a '95 Ford Taurus. Someone I worked with parked their '91 at around 500,000 miles (over 800,000 km). She's a work beater, but runs good and doesn't seem to use any oil. The major deciding factor will probably be how long the body lasts.
