I have a 110k on my Redrock RTL and a quarter of a million miles on my Silver RTX. I just had my first service done on the Silver RTX at 222,000 miles when I replaced the original timing belt and the water pump.

I am still on the original set of spark plugs. :)

99,900 on my 2008. 100k club has been saved by the airbag recall. For now. ;)

I just got mine at 120k miles but the prior owner had the timing belt, water pump, new plugs, valve adjustment done so I hope I'm good to go until the 200k club!

You might consider having your radiator/tranny fittings checked... or just replace the radiator. Then, routine maintenance and you should be good for another 100k+ miles.

WHAT!!!!!! I wanna see what the tip of the plugs look like.
They look great! Seriously. I can't believe it either. I had the Honda mechanic look at them when I had the water pump/timing belt service done 3k miles ago and he agreed that they look just fine.

I got my parts back when I had the water pump/timing belt to see how worn out they were. I was pretty shocked that the belt didn't even have a nick in the rubber and the water pump looks still pretty much new. The bearings are still tight and smooth. I only reason I had the service done was because I paranoid that I would break the belt because I was so far past the service interval.

The only thing my trucks use in excess are windshields. I think I am now up to around my 9th or 10th windshield between the 2 of them.

This photo is of my second set of plugs that were changed somewhere north of the recommended change. 110 thousand or so, I'd have to look through my records. Other than discoloration and oxidation, I could hardly tell the tips were worn at all.

Thats crazy. I have seen some iridiums with less mileage than that where the tip was just a little bubble and the electrode was half gone.

I wonder if you change them if your MPG will improve or not...Like I am curious if there is going to be any noticeable change in performance or anything. And if gas used can make a difference.

I was putting 1200 a month on mine until they approved telecommuting. NO I might put 300 and most of that will be to just get out of the house.
