Mileage Thread: How many do you have?

Our 2006 4.7 is just about to turn 90,000 and the only non maintenance items we've had to address are replacement of the battery and front sway bar bushings (the battery is not that unexpected).

The Commander has been outstanding, even more so considering it is a first model year vehicle. Quality is excellent and makes up for the terrible fuel mileage (yeah, I know: "why do you have a Commander if you want good fuel mileage?!") Towing the race car and hauling the lil ones around, of course.

Anyway...

We're planning on keeping her awhile and running her up to 200k+ and this thread is for folks to post their current miles and what non maintenance type items you've had to replace. Just wondering what may be ahead when starting to get well into the 100k mileage domain.

Thanks all!

121,500 on my 06 V6... not sure what maintenance was done on it before 116k. Didn't have specific records which is a bummer... but everything has been great so far and I haven't had to replace anything big!

Dealership put a new battery in when we bought it. Only thing that really needs fixed now is the climate control lights. The front end probably needs some work (hear some clunks when hitting bumps, etc.) but nothing too bad.

97,200 so far hoping for 200K+! only major problem i had was the steering rack and pinion, most likely caused by lift and sway bar hitting the inner tie rods....
