Well after many trips to California, Colorado, Moab, Sunrise, Flag and just about everywhere else in the state I have finally hit 100k miles in my truck. I missed the actual 100,000 on the mileage readout which I was bummed about. It was like missing a Haley's comet for me. Anyways, anybody have any advice what I should be looking for maintenance wise with those amount of miles? Oh yeah, here's a nice Moab pic taken by Sixty from the tacoma.

I'd check for any loose change under the seats, stuck in the seat pads, in the ashtray, etc.
Yeah, I usually try to keep on top of the change situation along with washing off the blood stains and "sand" :eek: from Kavu on the weekends.

Just drive it. Carry a replacement belt and duct tape!

One of mine has over 200K miles on it. It sits all winter in a garage at 9100' in Colorado and starts up every summer when I'm there to use it.(fuel stabilizer is a good thing...8mpg isi a bad thing:eekster: ). Two other cars have 130k+ miles and my kj crd has 33K on it. I drive them doing regular oil/filter changes and not much of anything else.

I'd post a picture but the server is to busy......:mad:

Check to see when the timing belt needs to be replaced, I know my X was about 100,000 miles. Also, spark plugs is you have never done them. Oh yeah, get your steering checked out, last time I drove it on Elden it seemed like there was a "clunk" in the steering column.

Lastly, can you get rid of the stench of Corn Nuts and Tuna fish that Crazy J left in there...:D

Yeah, the Elden Lookout road always jacks my alignment, I have been Febrezing my truck constantly to get rid of the smell and also put the banzor on Crazy J in my truck:D
