Take care of it and you can get another 200k out of it.

Nice, my red 94 was still running with 272,000 on it when I parked it.

I currently just broke the 100,000 mile mark on my 89. Well, technically I'm at 102,000 miles.

My 01 made it to 212k before the wonderful 0331 head struck and killed it (not under my possession). My 99 was running like new when I sold it at 170k. My new beater is at 229k and still ticking! Literally, its pretty loud. Chrysler sure did a good job on the 4.0L.

I used to have a picture of my Dad's 94 at 360k, then 390k and 400,xxx.. all original, never needed a major repair and ran beautifully when he retired it. The rust did it in - he ended up bondo-ing over the top of the windshield, so if the glass got a crack he wouldn't have been able to replace it. I should have taken it off his hands and kept it running - I have no doubt it would have crossed 500k with ease.

Keep good fresh fluids in it and you should be able to double that.
