    108,700 miles. Stock drivetrain. Replaced wheel bearings, upper and lower ball joints on both sides. That's it!

    There are signs and symptoms that my steering rack may be going south, but it works fine and is not effecting drivability yet so I don't count that.

    If we're counting "wear items" then tires, brakes twice, wipers, plugs and a bunch of oil filters. And some washer fluid.

    This thing is impressing the hell out of me.

    '02 Limited, 108kmi

    Other than regular maintenance and recalls (ball joints), the only thing that's gone wrong is the A/C condenser. Couldn't be happier with the thing.

    2002 with 115k, going on 116k in the next couple of days. Replaced the front rotors and brakes, stock stereo died and needed replacing as well, need to fix a light behind the tachometer, new battery, spark plugs, serpentine belt, and the regular oil changes and tire rotations. In a month or so she'll be getting a tune up and a once-over since she'll be hitting 120k mid-winter. Better safe than sorry =D

    so I told my wife how folks were easily breaking the 100K mark with few issues
    she was like
    "really" but with a "that sucks" in her tone
    she has nearly 70K on the KJ and I told her we were "keeping it until it dies and I can not bring it back for under $2500"
    I figure I can get another 75K out of it
    25K form her commuting and then the last 50K from me:cool:
