High Mileage DMaxs

I am just curious how many of the readers here have over 100,000 miles on the smoke blowers. I am curious to see how far they will go. I currently have 142,000 on mine and counting.

I have 72,000 on mine with NO problems. I know your said 100,000 but I just wanted to say how proud I am of my truck for all the abuse it has taken and all the fun it keeps giving!

I just turned 106,600 last night. I've had ZERO problems so far - only engine-related repairs were the belt tensioner (did it myself at 40,000) and swapped out the belt for a Gatorback at that time. I DO have a Kennedy Mega filter post-OEM, Amsoil dual remote bypass oil filters, an Amsoil/Uni oiled foam air cleaner and add 1 oz FPPF to every 10 gals of diesel (have burned 9800 gallons of fuel so far). Averaged 17.5 mpg, have been creeping back up to 18.8 mpg on my 42 mile rural each way commute of late. Have had excellent oil analyses and have 3 MORE PAYMENTS and she's free and clear!

Glad to hear some more good stories. I had to have my injectors done at 110,000. Hopefully it will keep chugging. A water pump under warranty and an alternator. Thanks for the replies.
