Highest Mileage Ranger

Wondered which Ranger(s) have the highest mileage on them, both with original motor or replaced motor. Hope to keep mine at least 200,000 miles. Just curious.

343,000kms, equaling about 213,000miles on original engine/trans.

Not the highest but it is up there.

I recieved a My Ford magazine not too long ago and there is a section where people write about their unique vehicles like one guy had a 68 ShelbyCobra gt500 he had bought it brand new and in 2008 he bought a new GT500


but I remember one time a guy wrote about his genI ranger with original engine, tranny (auto) and all he had to replace was the typical plus power steering pump, switiched it to run RA134, replaced the alt... I believe it was a 3.0.... total miles he had on it at the time was over 600,000 the truck had been repainted but looked to be really solid


Ive prolly got the lowest miles at 26xxx lol for an 04 had it since 4 miles on the clock

Over 260,000 miles here on the original 2.9 in my 92. But the Mitsu. tranny has been replaiced. I would say twice, and throw the rest up to bad rebuilds and people who don't knowwhat they're doing.

i will have to go get the little note book out of my truck i can tell you when everything was replaced from the bulb in the head lights to oil changes to then the tranny when out the first time. the guy i bought the truck from worked for Penn dot and wrote everything down in a little book. that's what sold the truck to me because of the miles when i bought it 248k. but it was pretty cool and after i put the decals on it truck i took it up to his house to pick up my bed liner and hes like i see your already starting to change it and i told him in about 2 years i will bring it up again and show him how far it has really come and he will be super surprised then hes a really cool guy

I know of two high milage ones. Both are 2.3L 5speed. One has 330k miles and the other has in the 450k area. The 330k one has only had one clutch replaced at 92k miles. Otherwise it's still chugging along.

My 92 Ranger had 421K on it when I got rid of it. The 4.0 had never been opened and the transmission was replaced at 269K. It still ran great when I got rid of it, jsut wanted a newer one at the time.

Why post if the truck before you has more miles???


This is to find out who has the most. If I have 250K and you have 150K don't post your 150K cause its not the most. There is another thread for how many miles you have. This is for the highest!

Gen ones never had the 3.0. Biggest was the 2.9.

My dad had a 89 with the 2.9. Traded it in a couple years ago with 370-390K on the clock (can't remember which). Lots of travel time on that puppy. Transmission and rear end were starting to go, though, so now he has the Tundra you see in my avatar (actually, it's technically my grandmas, as he really got it for her, but he drives it a lot [or more so then she does, lol!]).

Hopefully my truck can last that long with the original block and tranny. We will see this weekend.
