Driver's seat vinyl split at 150,000 km.
Replaced alternator and starter at about 200,000 km.
Replaced all wheel bearings at 260,000 km.
Started to rust at 280,000 km.
Extremely durable little beast. Went four-wheeling hard the day I bought it, and it's seen regular off-road use since. My daily driver for the last 16 years, I've explored many mountains, bogs and deserts on the side. It's spartan creature comforts are more than made up for by it's ability to take the punishment and keep on going.
The motor's a bit tired now, and I'm looking for a rebuilt kit. Hope to be driving this old friend for another 15 years!
