How long your transmission, or anything in your vehicle lasts depends largely upon how you use it, where you use it, and how well you maintain it. There are vehicles that develop chronic problems in certain areas regardless of what you do though. Mechanical failures are mostly due to sub standard alloys or slight mis-alignment of components and sub systems due to casting shifts or machine tool wear during manufacturing. Electronics failures generally happen because most high tech devices are obtained as outsources from the lowest bidder. That said, even the million dollar electronics used in spacecraft fail at times so there is no "perfect" part.
The factors above do not always spell failure but can work the other way and when a selection of parts actually matches better than normal that vehicle may go 400,000 miles with no problems at all.
Your anticipated mileage is low to average. Don't believe for a minute that you will require light service intervals. ALWAYS follow severe service plan!
Personally, I use full synthetic lubricants everywhere oil or grease is used in my vehicles. Synthetics are proven to give more wear protection, lower friction and do not break down chemically even if a service is forgotten or use is way past extreme. As such, I get way over 300K on every one of my vehicles. (5 Jeeps).
Last, use a shop that employs quality technicians. You do not need to have a dealer work on your vehicle in order to keep your warranty in force. There are often many Jeep specialty shops that not only service off road vehicles but use that experience in doing repairs on "grocery getters" In working on off-road vehicles they learn where all the design flaws are and how to defeat them.
The last factor unfortunately is luck... I've had customers that buy vehicles and for some reason they seem to last forever, regardless of manufacturer or how they maintain it. I also have had people that I'm certain they could buy a tank and somehow, it continually breaks.
I hope you aren't one of them!
Good luck with your new Jeep!!!!

2000 jeep wrangler are sythetic lubes used in axils and trans


Hello grega1967, your Jeep Wrangler came from the factory with gear oil in the axles and manual transmission, but the transfer case uses transmission fluid. It is a NP231 and your axles are Dana 30 in the front and Dana 35 in the rear. They should have a 4.10 gear ratio due to you having a 2.5 liter 4 cylinder.

I hope this helps,
