Bought with 100K on it in 2000, now has 185K. I've put maybe 4 grand into it, from regular maintenance (tires/oil/brakes/tune ups), to a radiator, steering box/pump, water pump, A/C compressor, cables and maybe more. I'd do it all over again. This thing goes 300 miles a week just for work. I live in NC and have been to the Everglades, Quebec (2x), Jersey several times and all through the South. I can put 2 kayaks, 2 bikes and camping gear in it and go a thousand miles and this bear just keeps going. I love the vehicle for its dependability, tough style and power. Yea, it's a few bucks to put into a vehicle, but it's cheaper than a car payment, and the insurance is dirt cheap.
Great style, decent mileage for a truck with 185K (21 on highway) and tremendous hauling capacity.
The green paint on these loses all its clear coat after a few years, but if you're a real "Jeepster" it doesn't really matter.
