Anyone else out there hit this milestone?

Most fun I've ever had in a vehicle.
3.6 Pentastar.
Essentially stock (mods: front camera, aux switches, rock lights)
I'm retired. Zero commute miles, zero trips to the mall.
These are all fun miles, around 5,000mi off-pavement.

Biggest problem was a broken weld on the rear lower control arm when going over Engineer Pass. Didn't even hit anything, and it was another Jeeper who noticed it. Guy in Lake City who fixed it for $110 said it looked like a bad weld. Jeep dealer back home said it wasn't a manufacturing defect. I've got better things to do than chase down $110 worth of corporate justice. I used climbing gear to hold it together while I drove to Lake City.

Good timing on the thread. I just turned over 10K this morning.

I had pulled over to take this photo. Foot on brake.

Its great to read that someone made the 100K mark with little to zero issues. sorry to say the control arm weld failed. looks like the weld was extremely cold from the picture. but at least you where not stranded and it was fixed for a decent price.

Congratulations! Your 3.6 is almost out of the break-in period!
