I was wondering how many miles a truck should last... I am thinking it's going to be a Chevy but in all fairness I had to mention Ford and yes Dodge...

My 2000 Sliverado has 235,000 I think it's just now broken in...

I saw a commercial the other day for full sized dodge with 25mpg I think. Made me turn my head.

ETA I misunderstood mileage.

i know some 1 million plus mile cummins powered dodges.

My duramax has 170k on it and still going strong.

Had a 7.3 powerstoke that has 280k on it,

Its not the engine that dont last, its always the tranmissions, front ends, bodys that crap out.

Yeah, I'd probably have to agree with you. I've seen some crazy mileage on Chevy's. I knew a guy who had 450k+ (i'm sure its more now) on his gas Silverado.

I'm just about to hit 200K in my Silverado. Probably going to be trading it in soon though for something with more passanger room. So I wont be able to see much past that. I have had to do nothing other than oil changes, Breaks and tires.

Not on point, but I was talking to my buddy Saturday and his '97 Infiniti Q45 just went over 300,000. He lost his rear end the week before, but the car's looking/riding pretty spiffy right now. He's the original owner and is somewhat anal about doing the needed maintenance and doing it himself.

300k is a lot IMO.

I have a 86 Chevy 1 ton 4x4 that has over 300k, its gas. My dad drove his 1/2 ton Chevy to 400k+. He did rebuild the trans. But being a turbo 350 it takes him 4 hours to do himself. Chevys will rust, but the 70s and 80s trucks will generally last a LONG time.

Loved my dodge, but a design flaw in the fuel system made it annoying as hell - could not trust it to run (oh, also had to replace both the transmission and 4x4 during that time). Ditched after too many times stranded before 100,000. Chevy - just got the wrong truck. Too much trouble, to femine of truck. Ditched under warranty. Ford running with no major problems - about 150k so far.

In all fairness my fathers old gray would be high up for the competition. Flat 6 ftw - Last we heard it was heading to 500,000 (lots of owners, same truck).

No, it's not. It's the angle and what the tires you can't see are resting on.

my '06 Durmax is right at 200K. Still on original brakes too! I have a Bully Dog programmer set on the middle ("tow" I think) setting. I avg around 17+ around town, 19 on Hiway. I did avg damn near 22 on a roadtrip I made from FL Panhandle to Upstate NY several years ago.

Front end had needed some work but I did spend just shy of a year running the same 4 mile stretch of "road" "paved" with #4 stones. My kidneys still hurt from that.

that's go to know. GF has the same truck and it only has 70K on it. Maybe we don't have to worry for a while.

my first Jeep - 1980 CJ-5 had 380K when I practically gave it away. Good old 258-6.

The odometer stopped working at 195,000 on my 1991 Dodge Dakota. It was a simple 2.5L 4cyl 5 speed manual transmission no power steering and no A/C. Only work I had done was a muffler change and oil change every 5,000 miles and changed the oil in the transmission every 30,000 miles. That truck wouldnt die. I drove it for another 5 years after I noticed the odometer stopped working. I averaged between 40 and 50,000 miles a year. I finally ended up giving it to my dad for his birthday when his truck (ford) kicked the bucket.

No way to verify how many miles but we have a subcontractor who has a 84 chevy long wheel base dually that has probably atleast 6-800k miles. The odometer hasn't worked since the late 80s.

It has been used in constant service since his dad bought it brand new. Now he still puts probably around 60 thousand miles a year on it.

It has a 454 and a manual tranny, I cringe when I think about all the fuel burned through that pickup. The fourth engine just got put in it earlier this year.

Personally, I had one with 360k. Now we usually run them till 275k miles and then scrap them.
