Hey everyone, here we are ten years from the first FJC's rolling out of dealership parking lots. I thought it would be cool to get a running count of how many miles people have on their FJC's. Let's see who reports the highest mileage! Who has the lowest on the oldest?

Along with your current mileage, include info about the health of your FJC. Have you done all of the recommended maintenance according to the schedule? Did you run into any unanticipated large ticket items? Are you clocked at high mileage and can't believe you are still using some factory part (be it the alternator, brakes, tail light bulbs, etc!)?

I personally am clocked just over 131,xxx on my 2007. I bought her two years ago with 106K. It needed brakes at that point, but had a new set of Toyo A/T II's, which I just swapped to Hankook Dynapro MT's, mainly because of performance concerns, not wear issues.

I flushed the trans. and had the fuel injectors cleaned last year when I did a full tune-up. Going to have the coolant flushed this spring. No rust/rot/decay aside from the expected Northeast road-salt surface frame rust, which I will knock off and POR paint this springs. Looks like all the factory electrical system components are running strong under the hood, and the suspension still feels great. I may add leveling struts to the front to gain that extra bit of ground clearance, though I recognize that they have the rake so it will sit level while under expedition-load in the back.

Here is a picture from yesterday, showing off her new boots. I plastidipped the mirrors, changed the grille from white to black, and used "Night Shades" lens cover paint to blacken the turns and tails.

I hope I have not started a thread that already exists, but I could not find it. SO... post your mileage!

I have just over 24K on my 2012 Iceberg. Now that the road salt has been washed away by some spring rain, I will be driving it more.

Have not had any unexpected big ticket (or small ticket) items being required, other than some light mods (TRD 17" Sema rims, blackout parts and the ongoing All Pro Slider group buy).

Looking forward to exploring the west in it this summer (Look for a vacation thread sometime in July). :smile

2007 with 43000 miles. So far my biggest problem has been $100 for new tie rod ends. Oh and I also replaced the radiator a while back, but that was definitely my fault haha

Man I'm jealous of the low miles. What caused the tie-rod failure?

2014 here with 4700 miles. More miles on the beach than on the highway. Beach is only a few miles from the house. Bought it to be used as a piece of fishing equipment, much like a quality rod or reel. Traded in an 8 year old Jeep with 24K miles, so that tells you how much hwy driving it gets, LOL.

I sold a 2007 TRDSE in 2012 that I bought new in 2006. I sold it with 125K on it when I sold it in 2012.
Bought a RRTT in 2012, it has 60K on it now.
I have a 2014 TTUE with 27K on it.

Issues were as follows:

The 2007 had transmission switch out with a Toyota rebuild at 103K, wheel bearings at 83K, and the pressure switches for the 4 wheel drive shifter failed at about 110K.
The other 2 have had no issues to date........gm

Wow lots of problems with the 2007. Are these types of issues common or did you have a one off?

Transmission shuttering is a common problem on the forum- a small shutter or hesitation between 2nd and third at 25MPH.
I misspoke on Ball joints, it was wheel bearings, sorry, but another documented failure on the forum.( i will correct with edit)
The pressure switches were corrosion from the chemicals that are being put on he roads for snow removal- one day the 4x4 stopped engaging.
I loved the truck- but it was a first year model.
The newer ones have been literally problem free.
That said, I have not gotten to the miles where problems begin.
I have taken the added precaution to change the Trans fluid at 50 K in lieu of the 100K as prescribed by Toyota.
Love these trucks!!.....gm

Sis in laws Toyota truck's transmission finally failed at about 300,000 unmaintained miles, so I reluctantly sold my early build 2007 with 110,000 miles for a song to her. Gotta keep the nieces and nephews safe. Only repair besides normal maintenance was an alternator and a $5 motor in the door actuator.

My 2012 only has 24k on it.

I bought my 09 about a year ago with just over 80K miles on it. I immediately replaced the brakes and all fluids. It now has just under 90K on it with no issues, except the constant enticement to mod it. I will be changing the spark plugs soon.

Just rolled past 38k miles, bought her in late October of 2012, daily driven dog hauler grocery getter, logging road bomber. I don't have a work commute so most my miles aren't necessity. Did my own first diy oil change at 35k, now it weeps a little under there even though everything is tight.

Mine just had it's 2nd birthday a few weeks ago and I'm sitting at just over 22K, but most of those miles are from a bunch of road trips. It's hard to say anything about the condition since I've installed so many upgrades in that period most of the parts have much fewer miles than that.

Not totally sure what caused the tie rod failure. They really werent too bad, but i figured if the alignment shop said in was needed than i might as well do it.
