steak2k1,

Not a problem. Sorry if I got a little defensive. I'm kind of a ford guy..... or at least a 95 f350 psd guy. In reality I think they all break, but I'm not to happy with the ford 6.0 either. the wife's getting the lbz

Default High miles

Ok so I bought my "01 Duramax?Allison truck from a norh slope oil company...first off I love to say it is running really great. If you can find on standard cab 4x4 for less than $11,500 go for it. Typical of slope workers they had cut the e-brake cable, added block heaters, pan heaters, tranny heaters, cut hole in roof for search lights and more. On the good side it came to me with 2 newer Red top Gell cells. I did have to replace the worn 7.5 radials with 265/75/16 E rated BF all terrain, I also added a full K&N filter and intake set. I was/am still amazed with the 1-2 Gallon per mile I have gained. Now for the cool part, my truck has well over 6 thousand running hours on the motor and is a will keep being our dailiy driver for a few mor years I want to know who else has this really high miles and what if and issues have they had!!!!

Default high milage

Not a diesel but I thought it needs to be reconized because a gas motor with over 350,000 I feel needs some respect. 1990 GMC 1500 4x4 Z71 ext cab with the true 350 motor still used. Just got the 2007 Duramax and selling the 1990 GMC still a good tight truck.

Alaskamax, I doubt your truck from the north slope has a whole lot of miles on it, its hard to rack up a lot of miles during white outs, but they used to keep the engines running all the time when the temp got really low, so a lot of those 6000 hours is probably idle time, non the less thats a lot of hours, if the average speed was 30 mph that would amount to 180,000 miles, maybe when I drive up to Alaska next time I'll look you up and see this truck. In fact I'd really like to visit the plant at Prudo Bay since some of the equipment I designed t has been there since the 70's. I'd like to see how it still looks inside those modules. I may just have to check into that before I head up there. Probably be 3 or 4 years away yet, before I'll have the time, but I'm going to make that trip on day.
