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.

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

53k on a 2005 Silverado with 500 miles on it when I took delivery. Two more years and it may have as many miles on it as the '88 Trek 360 sharing its garage space.

2007 Tacoma: sold it year before last with 248K miles. Buyer was very eager to get it.

2012 Tundra: just turned 150K coming back from south Texas this weekend. Probably should replace the OEM battery before the elk hunt in October.

Most miles I have ever seen on a vehicle was an 80's Peterbilt. A boss I had owned it. 3.8 Million miles. When it hit 3.8 he sent it off for a complete nut and bolt overhaul. Most heavy trucks are beer cans or sent to south america waaaaay before that. If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes i would have never believed it The original odometer was in the truck and still worked.

Bought a new Land Cruiser in 2000 and put 245k miles on it... sold it 'cause I was scared about the mileage. Bought a new 2007 Land Cruiser and it has 246k on it now. I'm not scared to keep this one.

We put 30K+ per year on each of two vehicles. One of the perks of living in the middle of nowhere, a long way from kids and grandkids.

While living in Missouri, there was an old black guy and his son who would come by, as they picked up post construction
clean up garbage, and recycled it and took it to the dump. He was a real religious man as was his son.

They ran a 67 Chevy 1 1/2 ton flat bed they have built a box on, and a 68 Ford F 250 Flat Bed with the 300 Six in it.
The Chevy had a good old 327 in it.

Got both used, but they would love to talk about their vehicles when asked. Each had well over 500K on them,
on the original engines, which have never been overhauled. At the time they were 20 years old., as this was back in
1988 when I lived in Missouri for a year.

They fired the trucks up at 6 am every morning, and shut them down at 6 PM at night. Brooker felt turning them off
and on wore an engine out... so these trucks pretty much stayed on 12 hours a day.....

Every Saturday they got the oil changed with NAPA 30 wt, and a new NAPA Oil filter.

I use to joke to Brooker that his truck engines were long past worn out, he just never turned them off long enough for
the Truck to figure that fact out. The reward would be his Uncle Remus Laugh.... him and his son were two of the most
down to earth finest men you ever could meet.

But he'd tell ya, the secret is don't turn them off when there was work to be done.

There is ALOT to be said about regular oil changes. I worked for Southern Pacific Railroad years ago. My boss had two different trucks. Once an older Dodge 1/2 stepside with a 318 (1976?) and the other was a new 1984 Ford 3/4 4x4. Both had weekly oil changes. It was not uncommon for them to have been driven 600-800 miles per day or up to 4,000 miles per week... And same as Seafire reports. They had very very high miles on them. When they finally got ride of the Dodge, I think it had near 1 million documented miles on it. Yes, it needed new water pumps, and alternators etc... But, then engine was never rebuilt.


James Pepper: There's no law west of Dodge and no God west of the Pecos. Right, Mr. Chisum? John Chisum: Wrong, Mr. Pepper. Because no matter where people go, sooner or later there's the law. And sooner or later they find God's already been there.
