    Okay, so its been a long time and i miss this family and my x. So im looking at picking up an 06 radiant red but im just curious on everyones thoughts. The truck is stock for what ive seen in photos but it has 245,000 miles. Yes, you read that right, 245,000. Has anyone else clocked close to this many miles and what kind of add on do you think this motor can still handle? Tia

    Wow that's a question, but what I'd be asking myself is it even cost effective, unless of course you're getting it for dirt cheap and can find some used add ons, then why not! If it runs good, has decent compression, doesn't smoke etc etc

    I think its a good deal. Im getting its for way less than its worth. It runs good and doesnt smoke. I loved my SWB and put a lot of time into it and it was a lot of fun to drive. I do all my own work for everything as most of the older members will attest to. Anyways, i guess my biggest question was has anybody clocked this many miles on an x?

    I don't have anywhere near that mileage on my X, but my 88 4Runner has 240k and I drive it 1.5 hours round trip to work everyday? lol

    Yeah, when i got rid of my 08 x, it only had 80k but not one issue aside from a technical issue here and there from aftet market mods. I just want another x but dont want to get one just to replace the motor

    I'm at 188K boosted since 167K. It's not 245K but it's getting up there.

    I don't think you'll have issues? The 1grfe, while not very efficient, is definitely a workhorse. If my 3vz can make it to 240k. The 1GR certainly can.

    Yeah, i think im going to go ahead and snag it while i can. I had a lot of fun in building my last x as you can see from my last build list. I think ill end up modding the crap out of it again and just roll with the issues (if any). Thanks everyone

    Im trying to pick it up but guy is very hard to get a hold of. He takes forever to respond sometimes. I think im going to put some mods to it and possibly some boost depending on how it handles light mods.
