I just crossed 28,500 miles on my 2 year old JLUR 3.6/manual. It's been trouble free and I couldn't be happier with it. I'm betting we've got some of these Gen 2 Pentastars out there that are starting to rack up the miles. Tell us how many miles you have and if you've had any issues, major or minor. Tell us anything else you'd like to share, such as oil, oil change interval, or whatevery you'd like.
Just hit 70,000KM's. Had to take mine in a few times for death wobble and uconnect gremlins but otherwise great! Mechanically perfect and actually impressed with fuel economy, daily drivability.

Still a blast to drive.

Thanks for responding. Yes, I’ve had all this addressed when they occurred. The climate and radio issues haven’t resurfaced

2018 Jeep JLU Sahara, March 15th 2018 delivered.

52,000 KM/32300 Miles

- Death Wobble
- Steering Dampener recall
- Rocker Arm issue (Started beginning of February) I am HOPEFULLY, finally getting in March 26th to fix this... Went in for the first time and fixed one, when completed they realized more needed to be replaced, took ages for parts to get in, parts finally got in and dealership closed the following day due to COVID...
- Clutch Recall (Going to go in and get checked the same day for rocker arm issue)


Does anyone else feel bad sinking so much cash into modding a vehicle you put so much miles onto every year? I think I will keep it forever but it hurts seeing the odometer go up so much lol. How many miles do people normally get out of there JKs? (First new vehicle, and first Jeep).

I've got almost 141,000 miles on my JK and it looks and drives like new. I'm keeping it for many years to come! 30k on the JL now.

That's awesome to hear, the whole mindset of "Keeping it forever" is helping with the amount I am putting into mods. Any tips you learned for keeping it new for that long? I take it through a non-brush car wash typically once every week or two (Salty winters in Canada, also wash it after every trail), Synthetic oil changes ~5,000 miles... About to hit 60k KM so gonna change out the axle fluid soon.

Don't believe that "Lifetime ATF" claim, be sure to have that ATF changed out around the 75k mile mark, and you'll be well on your way to a long life w/ that JL :)

Yeah I honestly never heard of that claim until a couple days ago reading here, I was going off the Jeeps maintenance schedule and it says to change it out at 60,000 KM, to change it in the JL its unbelievably easy from the video I watched lol.

I just crossed 28,500 miles on my 2 year old JLUR 3.6/manual. It's been trouble free and I couldn't be happier with it. I'm betting we've got some of these Gen 2 Pentastars out there that are starting to rack up the miles. Tell us how many miles you have and if you've had any issues, major or minor. Tell us anything else you'd like to share, such as oil, oil change interval, or whatevery you'd like.

Mine:

2018 JLUR, delivered in January 2018
28,500 miles to date
Mostly Mobil 1 AP 0w20
One oil change interval was at 7k on Pennzoil Ultra 0w20. UOA looked great. I am currently at 6500 on M1AP. I'll change the oil when the montitor gets to 0%. I'm guessing it will be at 8k miles.
Manual transmission. No issues with it, either.

No issues, whatsoever. Smooth, powerful, and LOVES to rev going through the gears! I'm running 35's, btw. It pulls 6th gear just fine above 60mph.
