My 08 Tundra with 130k miles on it was just totaled. I replaced it with a super clean 08 Tundra with 113k miles on it.

Surviving that long in that traffic is beyond belief

Yup. He bought another used one with 110k miles on it. How could he not? smile

I don't know how anyone can handle that traffic. I am about to pull the trigger on a Tundra in a week or so.

I've got 250 on my 2000 7.3 excursion and 325 on my 91 4runner. My duramax is the spring chicken with only 150k.

I had a 1988 Mack Superliner. When I bought it, it had 950K on it. When I sold it, it had 1.2 million miles on it and the engine had never been rebuilt.

That thing blew so much smoke, one time I had an angry motorist call me to complain. He said he couldn't see where he was going. I told him not to follow my truck so close. cool

At the dealership where I recently bought my new/old Tundra, they had an '07 Tundra on the lot with 430k on it.

Land of liberals, hippies, and...
I was in the process of looking for a used car for my daughter recently and was amazed at the amount of miles people put on in a year's time. I've been spoiled I guess because for the majority of my adult life I've had a take home car from work, and even when I didn't, I never worked more than about 30 miles from home. My current commute is eight miles round trip. I've also worked a 4-10 schedule for the past 20 or so years that saved quite a bit on mileage over the years. I drive a '99 Suburban that we bought in either 2005 or 2006 with 47k miles on it and it's just getting ready to turn over 116K. We simply don't put a lot of miles on vehicles
