Humpty went over 70,000 miles yesterday, I have no regrets about anything. The ride, performance, MPG, etc. is everything I hoped it'd be. Zack really is a stand up guy in all respects, I wish him and his family all the best.
I've read a lot of mileage claims of high teens and low 20s, also some high 20s and a few low 30s. I'm in the last bunch, I carry 68 gallons of fuel and average 26.7 on most fills. Driving like grandma (no offense) 30 is no problem.

Makes me want to dump the 6.5 and go to a 4bt.

probably a good idea in the long run, what mileage are you getting with the 6.5?

Just turned over 163,000 miles, changed the last wheel bearings (left rear) today. Not bad considering the axles now have over 200,000 on em, also ordered a replacement Bestop drivers bucket. :

Awesome! I love hearing this stuff! So encouraging to those of us that don't drive our rigs everyday.

i have a 1990 wagoneer with over 240,000 on it
and it appears totally unmolested
barely runs/weak but it made it a long way
i did not drive it any of the 240,000 ( parts vehicle )
but nice to know they can go that long.
