This thread has been about for a bit now so I'm guessing a few of you guys are clocking up some miles.. So what's the highest mileage we know of ? What have you guys got on the clock ? What engine work has been needed at higher mileage ?
Who has plumbed in the frame to give a bigger engine oil volume like this guy

What's the general though on doing this ?
Thanks kito
Make sure fuel pump is updated other than that a cooling fan is advised . as far as oil capacity I think that it is more than adequate. Mine never uses a drop. Now arond 3500 miles of mostly serious off road.

@woods racer. I am very intrigued by that terrain. Big trees and little under growth. What is that area called and how big is it? I bet there are a lot of turkeys there too. TIA

An interesting hazard we have in western WA is glacial till that gets covered with big puddles for months. Think loose grapefruit size rocks and slimy roots nicely hidden from your view. You learn to use that neutral position or go swimming.

In Vermont we have mud puddles that have 1 or 2 inches of water in them and 2 to 3 feet of suction mud under the surface. You learn to either fully commit or go around.

The area w the rocks is @ the Hatfeild McCoy trails , trail #199 on the Rockhouse loop. The mud pics are 10 minutes from my house right here in suburbs of Northern Va. First pic I was just trying to figure out if I could by pass a already angry mud hole and get a better shot at the uphill on the other side of the bog. NO BUENO.. Second mud hole was comletely covered w leaves , and usually isnt so deep . Just lucky I guess . Yes, there are lots of wild turkeys running around here, they can be quite aggressive. We came upon a group of 4 standing on a ridge . They didnt move or even flinch, just kinda stared at us for a long second then turned their backs on us and slowly walked awy as if to say Thats right MOFOs ....you dont want none of this.

Yep , we got the suction mud too. Years of decomposing leaves @ such makes pretty good quickcrete.

Thanks WR,

It becomes clear how you came to be against that tree from that angle! I am reworkin the protection on my new radiators now :)

I had turkeys on my property on Mt Hood OR. Liked to sit on my deck with a beer and wait to hear which tree the Tom chose for the night's roost.

Question on 2011 OEM cam chain tensioner. After you remove the cap is there only the one spring loaded part to remove? Just want toake sure there's only 2 parts, cap and spring loaded tensioner.
