    98 xlt 99 ltd
    396,000 miles.

    original engine, unmodified.
    Original transmission, unmodified
    Replaced stretched chain in transfer case- wasn't bad, just "Clunked" when I stepped on the gas.

    So far I have used 19 sets of brakes. (Long Chicago area commute, they get used hard) I can change all four brakes in less than a half hour. I purchased the lifetime warranty brakes at Autozone, so I only paid fo them once.
    5 sets of tires.

    4 sets of shocks. Probably should have replaced them more often.
    3 pairs of lower balljoints.
    1 pair of upper balljoints.
    1 radiator (started leaking around the plastic where it's gasketed to the aluminum)
    1 AC accumulator (rusted through)
    1 front pulley- (it cracked and spun, causing the bugger to run rough for a while before I found it and fixed it)
    2 pinion seals, one at 56,000 miles and another at 390,000 miles.
    Two sets of rear wheel bearings.
    two outer tie rod ends, one iner tie rod end.

    I weedwhacked a stone through the back window and had to replace it last summer, feeling like an idiot.

    Just started having some rust this winter.

    Still runing strong, still not afraid to hop in and drive to anywhere regardless of distance.
