I've been looking at various Wranglers, unfortunately I know I can't afford any examples I see. Cherokees on the other hand are in my price range. I've heard that 4.0's can be good for 250K with maintenance but scouring craigslist, Ebay and various Jeep Forum classifieds I see multiple ads stating "175K rebuilt engine at 160K" and so on.
Is this just from poor maintenance or off-road abuse that is hurting these God like engines?
Also yes I know I'm in for a ton of different answers but since I doubt I'll get the answer from the owners themselves I look here.
