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.

Greg, if i were you i wouldnt run mobil 1. 3.0's have a tendency to leak as it is, and if you arent running an oil filter made for synthetic oil, you arent gaining the full benefit of it. Motorcraft oil and motorcraft frilters are all you need, motorcraft is semi synthetic.

Motorcraft oil and filters have gotten me to 167,700 as of today, and my oil comes out clean and 5qts still come out of it.

I use Motorcraft oil filters and Havoline oil 10W-30. Runs well. Though I liked the K&N oil filter the one time I used it....
