Based on past experience, does anyone know how many miles to expect out of a 4.0L engine before it dies? Still looking around for a beater and found a dirt cheap '91 cherokee with 200k on a HO 4.0. I want something that I don't have to take apart and fix..
I don't have one myself but one friend has one in a 1991 renegade with 300,000 +/- and another has one in a cherokee with mid 200k. Neither use oil but they do tap some in the valvetrain. The one in the renegade is as strong as most v-8's i've driven.
81 CJ7 304/904/D300 scout 44's locked, full cage, 33"wildcats, warn HS9500i, bush bar from hell and diamondplate sides to cover gaping rust holes!! Coming soon OBA!!
in what ive seen its not so much mileage but how it was taken care of and how those miles were driven. I had my 4.2 blow with less than 100k because the perivious owner treated her like a redheaded step child. so it all depends. I would expect though that the engine is comming tho the end of her days
just my $.02
