I had a 96 XLT Sport that had 300k+ on it. The only time it ever broke down was when the battery went bad which is common.

97k/7 years/ 13k per year

I bought it at 80k and have had it for a year and 2 months now.

6 wheel bearings (4 front, 2 rear)
rims because the crommies pealed and cracked
2 rear coil springs broke and 2 front because I wanted new ones :)
second set of shocks
Drivers door hinges
3 sets of brakes
3 sets of tires
front lower ball joints
battery

20,000$ in body work thanks to the wife's roll over while playing with it.
That included a new roof, all new glass, just about every pannel, 3 new doors and about a ton of bondo. :)

all sorts of tranny issues still not figured out. next step is the to have the solonoids checked. if they pass then the servo mod is being done
