I had a 99 ram 1500 short box with a 318 with 312*** miles when it went... The motor had never seen any kind of tear down or rebuild... Only things I ever did were the fallowing

- JBA ceramic headers
- K&N intake
- Valvoline regular 10w30 motor oil every 3000 miles
- Mobil 1 oil filter at 3k as well
- Flushed the Rad every 45k miles
- Changed the valve cover gaskets at day one when I bought it when it had 89,219 miles
- Kept the rev's around 1,500-2,500 daily driven
- Went mudding once a month with it, and let it rev 4-5k for a couple secs

really about it.. think having a 5spd help prolong it's life.. what killed it was a wet road and a rookie driver who blew the motor.. I give mopar props for such a good motor tho!
