59k on my 2003, i just bought it and i love the truck! looking forward to doing preventative maintenance, so far just had to do the epoxy/solder fix on my tail lights, and my ride height control doesn't work so i have to dive into that. previous owner replaced the module which is like 800 bucks so at least the most expensive part was replaced lol.

its a 5 speed with sport package and 4 way air suspension.

2005. CPO at 27,500mi in March 2009. Current at 97,500. Look forward to the big 100k. Since purchase, here the list of things I had done:

1. Water pump
2. Brakes (2x)
3. Battery (I pay)
4. Alignment (3x, I pay)
5. New tires (I pay)
6. Thermometer
7. Condenser/Evaporator (I pay 25% since I died 1 month after CPO)
8. Auxillary fan
9. 4 Routine Maintenance (covered by Plan I purchased)

Dealers suggested front bushing and struts changes several times (not covered), but I refused since it cost $2,500 at dealer. I saw a thread here somewhere and I will try to do it myself. Now I am concern with clicking noises coming from engine when idled AND coolant leakage. Will see what happens.

156K miles
156K miles on my 01' 4.4. Replaced recently, both Vanos and chains $8K, steering rack $4K (bad call, only needed WD40 on steering universal) valley cover, 2 water pumps, various hoses, belts, gaskets, radiator, thermostat, other than that runs like a top and looks like new.

wow 740ilDuke, 178k is impressive, surprised you can afford the gas bill between those two cars and that kind of mileage lol.

149k for my '00 4.4, I think I've replaced everything but the motor.
I just rebuilt the tranny myself, have replaced every cooling system component, and most everything else you see on this forum. The real annoyances are things like exterior window trim flying off on the freeway, or door seal rubber falling off because even 27 clips wasn't enough. German engineering may be great, their choice in materials sometimes falls short. I was really impressed with the inside of the transmission, but that's built by another company. I don't know how people afford these cars after the warranty is up. Is sweet to drive though, and best looking SUV out there.

Did u document the repair of the tranny. And why did you rebuild? Please private message me.
