Whats considered "high" mileage on 1st gen?

Ive been looking for a first gen and most have over 150K miles. But they seem to be running strong still. Honestly, Ive never owned a vehicle with over 100K. There is one particular 2002with 193k miles. Just wondering what your thoughts experiences are with the 3.4 as it approaches 200k.

236k and all I've done is water pump and timing belt.

I bought my truck with 175k and I'm at 201k now without any issues. All I've done is regular maintenance and replaced timing belt and water pump and it's still going strong. If it is well taken care of from previous owners and the price is right, I'd say go for it.

238K+ and I have replaced the exhaust 2 times, all driveshaft joints, both exhaust sensors, belts and plugs....rock solid. Waiting for the crank bearing to go one day. I suspect that will be the death of her on day but I'm shooting for 350K

I like yourself have never owned a high mileage vehicle. This is my first, and my 2003 Tacoma now has 130K miles and is running better than ever. Other than a few bad 02s sensors and a leaking rack and pinion, its been trouble free and has not once never started or left me stranded. Even at the current mileage it's at it, I would not hesitate one bit to drive it across the country. Just make sure the owner has receipts that you can confirm that the maintenance has been done, any good owner will keep these. If not, never go by word of mouth, just walk kindly walk away.
