86 XLT 5.0 4 speed with 255,000 miles. I just put in a 88 motor because the old one threw a rod bearing and I wanted all the serpintine accessories.

Well, that makes it easy to last long.
In my case, having a girlfriend 300 miles away is one reason for lots of miles.

BTW, in my case everything happened after 135k -- fuel pump, water pump, rear end, and alternator. None of these were preventable -- they just reached their end of life. The previous owner (WA state government) may have known that the rear axle had problems because they did attempt to take it apart, but broke the pinion shaft bolt instead.

My 79 has 67,000 HARD miles on it. It started life as a ranch rig running up and down crummy roads and hauling hay bales, tack, etc. When I picked it up it had bent pushrods in the 351M engine, so I replaced cam, lifters, pushrods, valve springs, etc. Everything else is pretty much OEM. Every thing I have replaced on it so far has had a Ford Oval stamped on it, lol.

My "point" was 100K. I about got rid of it then, I could not afford all of the repairs anymore. But it has been over two years since then, and I just recently made the first repair, replacing the IAC valve. But that was minor. I think that my master cylinder is going out now, but after 15 years I can forgive that. I went over two years without doing anything except maintenance to the Bronc, after a bad month in December of 2001. There is not much left to break now, it's all been replaced!

The motor runs like brand new. No stumbles, no noises, no smoke, dry spark plugs, and it idles so smooth that you can hardly tell that it is running (5.8). I am hoping that my E4OD makes it to 200K. It works fine now.

Keep knocking on wood...

I bought my 95 in September of 1998 and it had over 80,000 at that time. I have increased that to over 260,000 since then which makes approx. 30,000 per year. I've had some front end work, a couple of serpantine belts, heater core, heater hoses, 2 water pumps, 3 complete brake jobs and a vibration damper replaced. So far, she's still running with no MAJOR problems.
