The former Jeep® 4.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine has made a name for itself as one of the most reliable engines, and we’ve seen some pretty high-mileage Jeep brand vehicles on-road and off- with that workhorse under the hood. But owner Jan Richey and his 1988 Jeep Cherokee take the cake in that department. Richey has over 612,000 miles on his Cherokee with the original engine still humming along. There have been a few modifications along the way, but by and large, his vehicle looks just as clean as the day it rolled out of the factory.
We’re sure Richey isn’t alone when it comes to owning a high-mileage Jeep brand vehicle, which is why we want to hear all about your long-in-the-tooth beast. Tell us the story of your vehicle in the comments section below. If you have photos to share, send them in through our Flickr page with the title “HIGH MILEAGE JEEP SERIES” so we know where they belong. We’ll be featuring the best tales right here.
