    I just turned over 248,500 on my 96,2.4,5spd today. Its a base model ext. cab truck. Has 14" tires, I run 6 ply trailer tires on the rear due the weight I carry in it. Anyways being a gearhead like I am, i'd like some ideas for a custom bumper sticker. For when it hits 250k miles. I WANNA BRAG on the miles.
    Thanks

    I was thinking the 250k club, kind of generic though.

    Took out the bench seat and but in leather racing bucket seats from Schucks, thus making mine a 2 seater. Put a leather steering wheel cover on.
    I got about 178,333 last time i checked on my 1997 regular cab, 4 speed auto, 4X4. You think i could easily make 200? 210? 220? 250? 300?

    On the above video, an owner of a 1996 Tacoma films his odometer turning over to 600,000 miles! :eek: Here's his story:

    I bought this truck used with 33,000 miles on it. It still has the original engine, transmission, air conditioning, back brakes (yes back brakes!) water pump, timing chain. The radiator was replaced at 594,000 miles, the fuel pump was replaced at 365,000 miles, the alternator was replaced at 350,000 miles. The starter was replaced at 551,000 miles. The clutch was replaced 2 times. The front breaks were replaced 8 times. The battery 3 times. Stolen hub caps 3 times. Original K & N air filter. I change the oil every 5,000 miles sometimes I go well over 12,000 miles without an oil change and that's the truth! coz' I thought this truck wouldn't last any longer but it still goes so I think it's time I baby this truck and change the oil more often. NO additives were added to this engine like synthetic crap stuff or conklin (whatever that is??), duralube, slick 50. Just buy Japanese and you're in good hands! My Honda civic had 352,000 miles while I street raced it on weekends and finally blew my engine when I installed nitrous oxide in it. My 1980 toyota corolla had 519,000 miles before a drunk driver hit it and totalled it. My Dad had a Lexus with 375,000 miles in it before he totalled it. My brother had a 1981 toyota corolla with 300,000 miles in it before he sold it. My in laws still have their Honda Accord with 400,000 miles in it and still runs great. My Datsun 510 had 342,000 miles before I sold it. All these vehicles have the original engine and transmission in it.

    I like that mws4ua, If you dont mind I may use that. I have a decal company that I use locally for our company trucks. I'll price it out next week. Or if you do order, I'll take 2.
