If it runs good, doesnt have excessive blow-by or smoke and it still has plenty of power i wouldnt let the milage worry you to much

Sounds like it should be fine. These motors last a long time if theyre maintained properly

Check the build date and fill in your signature. It will be easier for us to help and advise. If the build date is prior to Dec 12, 98 ( Ithink) it's an early 99. There are some changes that were made after Dec. It will make a difference when you but some parts you may need in the future. Good luck and like the others said don't worry about the miles if it's been maintained and not abused.
