Our 2006 4.7 is just about to turn 90,000 and the only non maintenance items we've had to address are replacement of the battery and front sway bar bushings (the battery is not that unexpected).

The Commander has been outstanding, even more so considering it is a first model year vehicle. Quality is excellent and makes up for the terrible fuel mileage (yeah, I know: "why do you have a Commander if you want good fuel mileage?!") Towing the race car and hauling the lil ones around, of course. :eek:hyeah:

Anyway...

We're planning on keeping her awhile and running her up to 200k+ and this thread is for folks to post their current miles and what non maintenance type items you've had to replace. Just wondering what may be ahead when starting to get well into the 100k mileage domain.

Thanks all!

121,500 on my 06 V6... not sure what maintenance was done on it before 116k. Didn't have specific records which is a bummer... but everything has been great so far and I haven't had to replace anything big!

Dealership put a new battery in when we bought it. Only thing that really needs fixed now is the climate control lights. The front end probably needs some work (hear some clunks when hitting bumps, etc.) but nothing too bad.

97,200 so far hoping for 200K+! only major problem i had was the steering rack and pinion, most likely caused by lift and sway bar hitting the inner tie rods....

Just rolled 100,000 miles yesterday on my way to work. Had to pull over to take a picture. I bought my XK brand new in 2007.

I haven't posted in a while. I bought my 2008 new in February 2008. I'll have 80,000 miles on my Jeep tomorrow. Most everything's been covered under warranty (water pump, transfer case issue, new radio, rear differential). The only items I've had to replace and pay for are tires, a second set of mopar floor mats because I wore a hole through the driver's mat, a new windshield thanks to construction on I-10, the cowl panel/cover because for some strange reason the installer cut the molding down while installing the windshield???, and the driver's seat lower cover that surrounds the seat adjustment controls (the plastic studs broke). I have nothing bad to say about the Commander. It still rides great, runs great, no squeaks, and the interior still looks new!
