I recieved this Jeep as a first vehicle. It came with 315,000 miles. Four years later as it nears 330,000 it still runs like a champ. Sure it has its hiccups, like leaking oil, or not idling after prolonged use, but for the amount of miles it does has it runs well. The a/c even works! If these vehicles are taken care of, and certain parts replaced, pumps, harmonic balance, radiator, it could potential last a person a few decades.
The powerful alternator. Has ran my twin 15" subs for over a year without a problem. The engine has lasted for 329,634 miles and its still going.
Seeing as they dont make these anymore, this is kind of pointless, but I would say for anyone buying one, to upgarde factory speakers, check the fuel pump, radiator, coolant tank, and the harmonic balance
