Most miles on your engine?

Hello out there. I would like to know what's the most miles have you put on your vehicle without having to "overhaul" the motor/tranny. Other than routine maintenance, who's vehicle has been the most reliable?

I'll kick it of by stating that my 10 yr owned '99 Tahoe has 225,xxx with noooo work done to the motor other than tune ups, a few water/fuel pumps and meticulous fluid changes. I'm currently deployed for the second time, so Im sure that the mileage would've been well over 300,000 had it not been in storage during my absence! :-)

    1995 Tahoe 253,000

    2000 Explorer 223,000

    Have no plans on replacing either of them.

    I had a 1990 T-Bird with 280,000 when some woman without insurance hit me and totaled it.

    I have a van with 348,000 on it which I never maintained it at all. I bet it has not had 5 oil changes. I imagine some well maintained commercial vehicles will go a million miles these days. Look at old police cars.
