I am curious who here has the most original miles on their nitro? I just bought mine with 157k. Not too worried about it right now and definitely plan to replace the engine when this one dies, just curious lol

The now old “girl” is up to 165,000 miles and still hanging in there. Contrary to popular belief, converting petrol to LPG does not, repeat not damage engines. Having said this, the 3.7 is a high risk engine, meaning the valves could recede as LPG is a dry fuel. To combat this an autolube dosing system should always be installed alongside the LPG system. Autolube is a graphite based lube which adds cylinder head lube into the LPG.

I have had my fair share of things going wrong, the most expensive being the replacement TIPM. The guys in the forum helped me get the job done saving hundreds of hard earned cash at the mercy of Jeep dealers here in the U.K. A massive thanks to Scar0 and the guys you’ve always been there for me!!!!

I just cannot part with the truck as I love it to bits. Even with its resident gremlins...here’s to the next 100,000!!!!!!!

2007 3.7
SXT (I think). It has the factory tow package and is 4wd.
I replaced the head gaskets just under a year ago, took me 4 days. Replaced water pump before that. Recently I replaced the radiator after the original one blew a chunk out of the side while idling. Also replaced the entire a/c system except for the hoses (evaporator took a day and a half). Replaced electric fan recently.
I cut off the viscous fan because its clutch started making noise and I couldn’t get it off. I don’t tow anything so I figured I don’t need it anyway (thanks for that knowledge Scar0).

i'm at 166,238 miles to be exact. :cool: The only major repair i have had to deal with is my rear diff completely went to trash. other than that just regular maintanance. the headlights have yellowed and will be working on a fix for that soon. ive noticed some rust bubbling on the passenger door on the bottom. but overall i cant complain.
Use toothpaste and a baking soda paste!!! Works wonders!!

Hey all. In 2016, I got a 2011 with 46k .... fast forward to March almost April 2021 and it has 201k and going strong 💪 no major issues. I seem to go through brakes and calipers were sticking over the last 100k but we got that all sorted out now. I love this car. Not sure what I'm gonna do when it decides to go to the pearly gates lol. Hoping it last to 300 plus thousand 🙏
