For all those saying this make your decision to buy a truck, It's YOU that makes it last that long. Keep it clean "frame" and keep it serviced. Address any small issues before they become big issues. And for god sake, don't drive it through the ocean or your pond. That will decrease the life on those wheel bearings. Its not just tocomas that can last long. My first S-10 has over 400,000 miles on it with the motor rebuilt once and on second 5 speed transmission. Dad's driving it now. My second olds intrigue had 275,000 miles when i sold it. My last car was a 06 G6 GTP and i think it was a lemon had 130,000 when i traded in for my 2012 DBcab tacoma. Looking to get 300,000 + out of it.

I installed the Icon front coilovers and rear shocks at 230k, so about 85k miles ago. Still feels and handles like it did new. I'm a big fan of Icon.

For your next set of tires, would you stick with the A/T 2s, go back to the M/S 2s, or go in a different direction altogether?

I'm running stock Dunlops now but am leaning heavily toward the M/S 2s when they're replaced. Thanks.

And I thought I had a lot of miles on my 06. I am at about 117K and bought it new with 32 miles on it back on July 10, 2006.

Congrats!

No not really. It started getting a bit notchy shifting from 1st to 2nd. Changing to Redline MT-90 gear oil solved that. No other issues.

I wish the Michelin M/S 2 tires had a more agressive tread, but there is really nothing else I dislike about them. Quiet and long lasting ( ~65-70k miles on my truck) and good resistance to flats.

MT-90 is great stuff. I used it in my 2004 Tacoma and use it in my 2013.

I decided 325k on the original clutch was enough. I had the clutch disc+TOB+pilot bearing+pressure plate all replaced and the flywheel resurfaced by a dealer.

The clutch was working fine, I just wanted to be proactive, as the original clutch had 325k on it and I did not know how much friction material remained.

Here are some pics of the disk. I was surprised to see it was a LUK clutch disk, rather than ASIN.

My 2005 with 175K miles has a little funky shifting when it is cold, like 30 secs-1 minute after starting. Only in third gear, it seems to almost shift TOO easy from 2-3, almost falls in and sort of grinds for a split second. Have anything like that throughout your experience? Once it warms up, it never does it anymore.

Dang, still lots of miles left in the clutch disc at least. Good to have a new throw-out bearing though, hopefully it stands up as well as the original. I guess we'll know when you hit 650,000 miles.

Thats awesome to get that kind of milage out of one clutch plate, you sir should be teaching all of us how to drive a manual trans. Over 300.000 on the truck shows that you know how to take care of the truck. I had a 1991 xtra cab , i put over 300.00 kilometers on it but the body and the frame eventually gave up, rough climate here on the East Coast, hard on vehicles
