It's a tad on the high side, but if you keep up putting 25k on it in a year, it's gonna be way high really fast = P

i bought my 03 edge in 9-04 with 26k and i only have 32k. i drive company truck from home to work. most cars and trucks travel about 15k per year. best mileage for trucks are freeway miles it's easy on the motor, it's not working as hard like city driving, with all the starts and stops. keep all the drivetrain fluids changed at a regular intervolts and this will help the motor, trans and final drive last longer, as well as the coolant this way you won,t build up scale in the cooling jackets in the block. i see you are running 31x11.5 tires you will what to check front wheel bearings at 50k and repack with new grease. bigger tires will cause bearings to wear faster.

I want to update my mileage - 95,400 as of this morning.

I travel to Indiana a few times a month combined with trips to NC, KY & PA all for work.

Add to that my GF lives 46 miles away from me so that makes for some quick miles.
