    Reading Lee's post about the engine makes me wonder about how many miles I can hope for from my 2005 STA. I assume this has been posted before but how many miles does everyone have on their trucks? I have just over 137,000 with no major problems so far.

    170,500 on my '01, no noise. 86,935 on my '02, which occasionally has a little noise at idle after restarting when the engine is warm. Goes away as soon as the rpms get above idle speed.

    I'm currently at 190,000 miles on my 04 STA. Most recent thing I had to do was replace exhaust manifold gaskets. When I got the superlift kit installed, did all new inner/ outer tie rods, body bushings, sway bar bushings, rotors/pads. Sitting on bigger wheels and tires now... the next thing will probably be regearing.

    2003 with 372,000 miles as of this morning.

    My dependable daily driver. 35 mile commute each workday each way.

    Original engine and transmission.

    I lose track of what I have replaced and how many times.

    I do know I still have the original alternator, starter, steering rack and pump, engine, transmission, rear axle, driveshaft and u-joints(!), seats, window mechanisms, etc. I keep thinking I need to find a replacement soon, but it just keeps starting up every morning!:driving:

    That's great to hear Dreman. That gives me hope that mine will last as long!
