You're either older than I thought or very ambitious!

198K, I bought it with 141K on it 6 years ago.
The only engine work is fixing many $*!@$*! oil and fuel leaks in the valley and a new water pump.

I'm only 25, so I guess that makes me ambitious! As long as I can keep from totaling it I'm keeping her!

Can you post a pic of your odometer reading that?

Mine has 343k miles on it now. The last 100k miles have been w/ aftermarket injectors and tuning.

We don't fix, we upgrade! That's why I'm not concerned with running any additive in my diesel. When the stock injectors go bad, I get new stage 1s! My wife can't tell me I don't need them if they go bad.

121k on her right now. Bought her at 52k and the fuel pump was done that month. Jeez, I prolly made my account here within six months of buying it. lol.

I see zero reason to buy another truck. Okay, I wouldn't mind a black 7.3 Sooper Dooty CC LB 5-sp to match, but only because I like those trucks, too. But I don't have the cash to plonk down, so it isn't happening. Poor me.

156k on mine. I've put 70k on it in the 11 years I've owned it. My plans have always been to keep it and never get another one. At 6-7k a year, it should last that long with some maintence of course.
