95dodgeV10 is on a distinguished road

im pretty sure its worn rings cause im pretty sure the 1st owner ran the crap out of the truck. to answer all questions i have a volant oiled air filter, i run royal purple oil, truck holds 50 psi oil pressure pretty much all the time, and it has 192000 miles on it. it doesnt have so much blowby to blow the oil cap off atleast not at idle but it blows enough smoke out the crankcase vent iv had people at stop lights inform me my truck is smoking (-_-) and depending on wind direction you can see a decent cloud rise out from under the truck. Enough oil gets out of the crankcase vent that it leaves about a tennis ball size spot of oil every time i park. no major knocks (other than the normal diesel clatter) no miss fires, and doesnt blow very much blueish smoke that i can tell apart from the puff of black smoke when it starts. i wouldnt be against doing a rebuild if i could do a basic rebuild but i know myself and id want to pour money into better parts.
