I purchased a defender and was told it had 3000 miles on it. when I found out how to open the odometer it has almost 14000 on it. Anyone know what the safe life span is for these units.

Wow that's nasty, I would check and change, if required the fluids in the front and rear diff and transfer case and engine. If the engine is running well you should be okay it may require the valve lifters to be reset. The wheel bearings may need to be regreased. You can take the clutch cover off and blow or wipe all the belt dust off and do a visual check of the drive and driven pulleys and replace any worn components and the belt if its worn. Spark plugs, fuel filter and air cleaner, antifreeze etc should be checked and replaced.

If the machine is running well enjoy it, I am not aware of any mileage limit if you keep up the maintenance.🤔
