Seriousley, How many miles can you get on a D-Max......

Can anyone give up their own km, or miles driven on engine and transmission so everyone can compare?
Also we can get a good idea of life span on parts, engines, and transmissions.

Lets get it on...

I tore down a 2001 LB7 that had 300k miles on it and everything looked perfect, well within allowable tolerances. It stopped running due to a sheared crank pin (when the pin sheares the ECM loses crank position reference and therefore wont run).

My service truck runs like new with 245k. My old 01 was sold to a buddie and now is close to the same. There's an 01 LB7 on chevy200k with over 700k at the time it was posted. HaulinRV saw it in person with nearly 900k. All on the original innards. 4-500k is not out of line if it was maintained well.
