    Just bought a 2002 sport 4x4 with 184k on it. Runs perfectly. Do not know much about the history. Engine and tranny strong though.

    well my odomoter broke about 3 years ago and it was reading 275K. Since then ive probably put about 10K on her each year, so im Over 300,000 for sure, as to the exact number who knows. But yes i agree, we should start a 300K plus club, and ford should pay us for keeping these beasts running so long.

    I'm in. My 96 XLT has 353975 on the odometer right now. The odometer worm gear was broken for about a year, so I'd guess the actual mile is somewhere around 375000. Original 4.0L OHV V6 and transmission. Just replaced it with a 99 Eddie Bauer V8, so the 96 has been retired.

    145k young. Engine and drivetrain run like a charm. See no reason why it won't go to 200k+ with no engine or transmission work. I'm slowly fixing the minor annoyances but I haven't had any serious trouble in the 6 months I've had it.

    Right around 150k. No engine, trans, or drivetrain problems in its life. Body and suspension are in the middle of a complete restoration, overhaul, and modification. Barring getting t-boned by a semi or something, I'll keep the ol' girl on the road til the world runs out of gas.

    180,000 / 15 X $3.50 = $42,000. :( The Arab countries love us Explorer owners. We should ask them to provide some rebates on parts.

    Odometer stopped clocking at 134,444 :( but regardless it's still going on strong for a 96 4.0L Eddie Bauer X. No major work has been done to it, although it does have its troubles :)
