    I thought that I'd start a thread so people could show off their high mileage shootin rigs. It doesn't matter what the brand or if it's car or truck.

    Here is my '96 Chevrolet Suburban. It has the original engine and transmission (unrebuilt).

    I have a Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4 liter 4X4.(182,000)Purchased new in Sept '99!--Never had a wrench on the drive line, except for carrier bearings! Had misc. small problems when new, most covered by warranty. It gets serviced per the service manual every 3K, oil, filter, rotate, whatever is recommended! Didn't think I would be satisfied with an in-line six, but this one runs great!

    I have a 2001 F-150 Supercrew 5.4L with 206,000 on it. It's a daily driver and pulls our 30'camper all summer long to shoots.I'd like to say it's still running strong but this weekend shooting out of town the rear end started making some pretty bad noises. It did however make it home on it's own and is up on the lift now getting the rear end gone over. Really can't complain I guess it works pretty hard with that 6,300lb trailer and has never left me stranded. I've always had Fords and have loved them all. I'm thinking of stepping up to a diesel now and unless I can find a nice older ford that has the 7.3 powerstroke I might have to go to GM. The new ford engines 6.0 & 6.4 seem to be pretty much junk.

    I'm jealous of you guys. Much of your mileage is to shoots. Wish I could say that.

    PBB,

    Seeing that it's a Ford that would be like dog years wouldn't it? Lol.

    MIA,

    It's all purpose miles. Shoots, grocery store, hunting, etc. I believe in getting my $$$$'s worth.

    ec. I note the scraggly oaks in the b/g without leaves. Are you in the NOrth as well as many of the rest of us?

    No picture is needed - everyone knows what a Ford F-150 looks like .....In my last job I drove a lot - not so much now - My current F-150 has 290,560 miles on it and looks/runs great. I recked the previous F-150 at 311,000 miles - the one before that I sold at 308,500 (was running good - just wanted different interior style)--- the one before that I just parked at the farm for ocassional duty - it had a little over 400,000 on it...........Ford builds a good truck and is not standing in line begging the feds ----- Based on my experience, if I am having to buy it, it will be hard to get me into a different make of truck -

    Sorry, no pics, but 5 yrs. ago I sold a 1991 Cherokee Laredo 2 dr. with 189,000mi. on it. It had the fron end knocked off of it twice, once before I bought it, and once after :). I bought it as salvage, and repaired it to original cond. Same thing the second time.



    Told the guy I sold it to the whole history. He didn't care, didn't even haggle. It had the 4.0 HO engine. There was never any frame damage.




    First car was a '79 Mustang purchased in '89. 2.3L 4 banger. Bought it for 200.00 with 130,000 on it and a seized engine.





    Put oil in the cylinders for a few days the towed it around while dumping the clutch. Around the third try, it broke free and fired up. Put a new clutch and head gasket in it, changed the oil and did a tune up, put another 40,000 on it.


    Neither are 200,000 when I had them, but I suspect with strong conviction that they made it there!

    My 1994 Explorer had 281,000 when it was junked, still ran good but none of my kids wanted it so my wife called a buy scrap guy after it was sitting for almost a year. Got $400 for it last summer. A guy I worked with used to travel 87 miles each way to work and had over 400,000 on a 1991 Explorer. I got a new Ford diesel truck last year and that will be the last vehicle I ever buy because my 1989 Ford diesel with 261,000 is still running like new.

    My "Stedman Special" had 225000 on it when I got rid of it last year. Had to get a new one, as they were giving them away. Wish I would have waited a year. I think they are now paying you to take one.
