Hello all,

I just want to let you know my truck passed 200,000 miles this weekend. The engine is still as strong as ever and has know leaks or oil consumption issues. The transmission is spotless every time I pull the pan. The drivetrain has done everything I've asked of it and that is a lot. The body is solid and interior nearly good as new. I hauled many heavy trailers and passed or kept up with the diesel pickups trying to lose me.

I am now a former Chevy man.

Thank you Dodge for being Ram Tough.

Well done! You don't get 200k on any vehicle without being dedicated to maintenance.

take of it, it will take care of you. I'll be hitting 1K in about 4000 miles.

That's a buncha miles! Mine has 117K. At the rate I'm pilin' 'em on, it'll take 20 years to reach 200K.
