Hit 200,000 yesterday. Bought new, and couldn't be happier with the way she runs and looks now.

Never used a buffer, only hand polished & waxed. Meguiars Ultimate Compound, then Gold Class wax. She has trailered the boat many times in harsh conditions in late fall. Been left out in sun, rain for years at a time. I thought it was time I make room in the garage, especially with hail potential this spring.

Had Ford dealer do a compression test at 147,000. They said they have never seen a motor with that many miles have compression that strong. Have only used Castrol GT conventional oil since the first oil change.

Thanks! Not my first rodeo. First truck was a 1988 2WD ext cab, manual trans Ranger. Next was a 1993 2WD ext cab, manual trans Ranger. Both bought new (yes, I'm old!) Made my mistakes when I was younger. This truck has done everything I have asked of it. Hopefully, she'll hit 300,000.

With the pristine maintenance that you have done and how great of a condition you have kept it in, she'll hit 300,000 easy and then some!
