partly playing with the poll feature, partly looking for a graph showing how the stock engines are doing. :L: 

 

multiple choice answering is allowed for guys owning more than one.  If your trucks both have 175k, then I don't know how to accommodate that  :dunno:

You said "trucks," so I didn't include my original '88 Cherokee. 287,000 miles and still running (when I get around to replacing the leaking injectors).

Well 498,400km on the first 4.0 in my first MJ before I pulled it puts me in the 300+ club, by just. I also added one for the ~270,000km that are now on the engine that replaced it (240,000 of which were accumulated by the XJ it came out of). I've also got 172,000km on the other MJ's original 2.5 when it came out, but it's death was due to neglect from the previous owner. Sometimes when your crusty old radiator is leaking, the fact it quit leaking on you doesn't have much to do with the stop-leak you were pouring in the top as quickly as the coolant was coming out, and more to do with there only being a finite amount of coolant in the system...

Didn't realize you could select more than one. I also have a unknown mileage engine swap truck.

The original 2.5 in mine had 200K when I swapped it out for the 4.0.  It then got swapped into another MJ and ran for about 2 years (don't know how many miles in that time though) and finally met it's demise when the block froze and cracked from sitting out in the winter with plain water in the coolant system..RIP :doh::mad:

 

The 4.0 I swapped in had almost 200K on it, I just freshened up the top end (nothing on the bottom end was touched, except for a new oil pan gasket lol).  I drove it for several years, probably putting another 30-40K on it, before selling it off.  I have no idea what happened to it after that.  The new owner seemed like a cool guy/wrench head, so I assume it's still running somewhere out in the hills of southern VA.  At least I like to think it is.  I check Craigslist every once in awhile to see if it ever pops up.

Not an MJ but my 98 XJ has 457,000 miles on it. The internals have never been touched. It runs so well I’m thinking about putting it in my YJ build just to see how long it keeps running.

It’s to bad that the XJ is extremely rotten.

Much worse than this picture shows.B613E83E-881D-45A0-97E2-5F08E4B2A704.jpeg.ac465e5a45f15b010085480a51d0f92d.jpeg

My '91 is still running great at 177k.

 

My '89 has approximately 140k and is in no way running great. Change your oil (and don't let it run out) folks.

Mine has 301k miles.  It did get "refresh" rebuild at ~267k.  Still the original block, head, and crank - not sure about the rods and pistons.

224,xxx on my 88 4.0.  Original as far as I know- needed a new oil pump, and has a case of disappearing coolant (really hoping its escaping the pressure bottle).
