Just bought mine with 118,000 miles. (98 Eddie Bauer Expedition) about 3 weeks ago. Looks like new, seems to run great. Cold start is a little rattly. (i'm hoping that's kinda normal). Seeing your posts makes me feel like I have some good years left in her.

Yep, they can sound a bit rattly until they run for a few minutes. Quite normal.

66,000 on my 2003 2wd Crew. Other than a new battery, a replaced drive shaft under warantee, not a problem.

Cheers! I agree! As long as I don't pop any plugs, AND I'm looking at a 1999 motorhome with a V10! Am I brave or.....

2002 supercrew, 4x4 with 67K on it. Bought it in May when it had 55.5K. Just replaced the no. 3 cop. Still feels like it misses occasionally, but no error codes. I think it doesn't like the Galveston damp winter weather.

298,908 so far on our '97 Expedition. A couple of rotors and calipers on the front, an alternator, several sets of brake pads, a hand full of plug changes, two original coils still on it, replaced one leaking a/c hose ($248 WOW!!!), one rear axle seal, one ball joint, one tranny fluid change and a bunch of oil and filter changes. Not to bad for a daily driver. I'll ditto the importance of MAINTENANCE! It's a goal now just to see how long I can make this thing last.

Just a little over 100K on my 2002 FX4 SC. Had 36K when I bought it (a year & 1/2)!
I put a lot of miles on it daily! 16-17 mpg, so far, so good.

127,000 on my '01 7700, I'm sure I've posted on this thread previously, but my pedalometer keeps climbing. I just put a cap and rotor on it and it runs like new.
