Well the rack went out at 48k thank God it was under warranty.
At 53k it needed its 3rd set of odd sized tires.only 2 brands?
At 56k its first front air susp.bag went,lucky... i found a company that rebuilds with a lifetime warranty w/exchange for a couple hundred bucks
At 58k the right front air susp. bag went
At 59k the air susp. compressor went.
