That is very impressive and what a nice looking jeep! I'll be lucky to make it to 250k.
Have you had to make any big/expensive repair jobs to keep her running this long?

Just a few things like the alternator, fan & clutch. I did the steering rack, because I had 20 inch wheels and tires on it for a few years. That really beat the crap out of it. Rebuilt the rear end. Replaced the radiator. Replaced the driveshaft. I've replaced the windshield for five times. I fix any little thing as soon as it breaks, or wears out.I don't defer any maintenance whatsoever. I think I attribute the longevity by using synthetic fluids everywhere I'm able to. And I change them more often than required.
I would say, every repair I've done has been less than $1,000 as far as major repairs go. It never goes off road. And I don't park where I can get door dings. So that helps a lot.
It'll be 13 years old in May.
To this day ,almost every gas station I go to ,people come up to me and talk to me about it.Mostly because it never gets dirty. And I keep it clean and shiny. And It has a unique look. So it stands out. I would like to get another 60/70,000 miles out of it. I don't know.

Very impressive! Taking care of all the smaller stuff right away definitely seems to have paid off. I am less than perfect when it comes to those so if I ever make it to the 250k club I'll probably be pushing it across the line.

Well... No good deed goes unpunished.
My heater core in the dash just started leaking. I'm going to go ahead and replace the evaporator while I'm in there. I turn the heat on,and it's got that unmistakable smell.
