    Just curious how many miles are on everyone's daily drivers. My '88 Jeep Cherokee has 195,500 and still going strong (for the most part).[​IMG]

    My 93 toyota has 288,000 miles. It's giving me problems now. It looks like a engine rebuild or swap.

    I have over 160K on my K5. My '73 CJ5 has at least 100K, but I would imagine alot more. The speedo froze at 94K and I have put at least 6K on it. The PO put lots of miles on it too that didn't register as well I am sure. Part of them is towing miles though.

    Ouch , why so many motors ? I still saw the crosshatch on my cylinders when I did the heads at 88,000 , so I left the bottom end alone :)

    truck speedometer said 7400 when bought it near three years ago it is a 73 I am guessing at 207,400 but not sure speedometer was not working when i bought the truck. Think motor has been rebuilt once years ago but still orginal q-jet on top.
