Wow!   I thought my 2000 Chevy Tahoe 5.3 vortec was doing good with 287,700 on it. I just had to put a new rear main seal in as it was blowing oil out the back pretty good, now should be good for another 200k at least.  She doesn't get pampered lots of trailer towing and dirt roads.

202,200 on my 2005 Ram 2500.  A lot of hauling and towing.  Plenty on snow, gravel and rock roads/trails from WA to WY.  Put a flatbed on a few years ago, so not making it any easier on the old girl.  Said when I bought it would likely be my last.


I just hit 400k on my 05' Dodge Ram, trans was rebuilt at 70k and fluid changes since. I said the same thing when I bought mine, with all the pollution crap on the new ones I'll just keep rebuilding it.

280,000 plus on my Silverado 6.0. But!!! 170 or more of that is timberland roads and farm
Would be interesting if there was an accurate way to convert the miles to paved highway miles.  Some of those DNR and USFS roads can be brutal.

I drove a Pepsi truck back in the day that had 770k on it, does that count?

I usually get right around 300k before selling my old trucks, most have been the 5.3 Chevy, on was a 350, all ran great when I sold them.

My friend has trucks, log trucks, chip trucks and gravel trucks. Every piece of equipment he has comes from the auction. Must be 10 or 12 years ago he told me he had bought a new truck for hauling spaltz to Longview. I couldn't believe it and I was right. It came from the auction with 1.2 million miles on it. It hauls a chip trailer on average two trips a day Neilton to Longview. It currently is sidelined waiting for a transmission rebuild. A few years ago I helped him rebuild the frame, new frame rails.
He has a gravel truck he claims has near 3 million on it. It is in the bone yard. Drove its last mile.

500k is incredible

I've got 259,000 on my 03 Chevy s-10, original engine(4.3) and transmission, burns maybe 1/4 to 1/2 qt oil between 5000 mile oil changes. Hoping to get to 300k before transmission goes out. It runs strong and shifts great still.  :dunno:

438K miles on my 2001 7.3 F-250 retired it in 2015 as my daily driver when I bought a 2015 F-350 6.7 and I have 170K on it.  Gotta love them diesels

2004 Nissan Xterra and 2008 Audi A4, both over 200K. Working on 300K I've had to fix broken timing belt/chain on both. Xterra had a blown head gasket on the #1 side. The Xterra drove from Washington to Indiana and the a trip to North Carolina and back and carried quite a few deer. The Audi has done a few trips to  Arkansas and back and one to Maryland. I would buy either again when I need to, too bad the Xterra is no longer made. It has manual transmission and 4 wheel drive, my go to snow vehicle.

I had a 6.0 diesel that went over 130k before it blew up. :chuckle: :chuckle: :chuckle:

Having three of the 6.0L Ford's in my work fleet this right here might be the most impressive. I don't think any of them saw 100k before massive repairs.

I'm in a good spot right now with my highest mileage vehicle only at 255k with no failures yet. 08 F250

Got a 1997 ranger 4x4 with just shy of 297k and she runs and drives like a top. All original. Been thinking of converting it to a sweet hunting rig. LS swap it with a straight axle and a flat net but who knows ha

We've got an International Diesel Cab over box truck in our fleet with 630k on it. 
It's a 2002 and starts up like it's a 2020.  Most reliable vehicle we have ever purchased.

It is by far the most un-comfortable rig I have ever driven.  Like sitting on a stool, driving a fish bowl, with a steering wheel the size of a wagon wheel.

Your description has me envisioning a couple of Russians driving that rig on an icy Russian freeway, cursing loudly at other drivers while some funky music plays on the crappy radio, all of it being recorded on a dash cam.

Man, I thought i had stacked the miles on...but mine are spread over several trucks.

2001 2wd S-10, bought new, 296K, has had the endemic intake gaskets changed once, a couple of alternators, radiator/heater core (related to intake gaskets issue), one water pump, one fan clutch, front wheel bearings the usual brakes/tires/filters consumables and 2 major tuneups.  Still running strong, Oil changes every 5K, the larger filter every time, and a couple of busted windows.  Towed my boat a LOT with that one.

2001 4wd S-10, bought in '04 with 36K on the clock, now has 259K, has had the endemic intake gaskets changed once, an alternator, radiator/heater core (related to intake gaskets issue), one water pump, one fan clutch, on 4th set of lifetime lubricated front wheel bearings the usual brakes/tires/filters consumables and 2 major tuneups.  Still running strong, Oil changes every 5K, the larger filter every time, and a couple of busted windows.

1995 K-1500, bought in '13 with over 160k on it, now 225K on the clock, water pump, fan clutch, heater core, radiator, clutch/pressure plate/TOB, one alternator, the usual brakes/tires/filters consumables and 1 major tuneup. 

Recently got sideswiped in a Lowes parking lot from just behind the door of the extended cab, clear back to the tail light, load hanging off a landscape trailer did the deed, guy never even stopped...I am still FURIOUS about that.

Whatta ya mean I can't have one of each?

WDFW is going farther and farther backwards....we need FISH AND GAME back!
