Most miles on 2.3L 2001 or later?

I was just curious who's got the highest miles on a 2.3L 2001 or newer engine? I've got a used 2002 with only 15k miles and I was wondering if anybody has got over 100 to 150k miles yet? If so, what oil and filter have you used and what kind of duty has your Ranger seen?

Any of you folks had any reliability issues? How has your engine ran? Any areas of the 2.3 that seem prone to wearing or replacement?

Great! So far it looks like this engine is a good one. I hope it'll last well over 150k miles.

there was a guy named citoriplus who had a 2001 either 2.3 or 2.5, with an astonishing 300,000 miles on it! (the guy drove nearly 1000 miles a week...)
