Ha ha Ya mine is a young one I take care of mine also so I wish I have success you have.

I dont want to turn this into a debate/but since I started the thread I guess I can jack it .

Is 5w30 Mobil 1 to thin to keep using with high miles. I started a few oil changes ago and I know once you start synthetic your not supposed to switch. Is there a high mileage synthetic or should I go with 10w30 spec. in winter?

132,8xx on my 1995. I am driving it around the country right now towing a 2000+# trailer. I would not worry about off-roading. Now you can finally relax. It is all grown up. It looks great by the way.
