My 08 Ram 1500 has a little over 87,000 miles, but still running like a champ and doing everything I need done wether it's hauling my dirtbikes or racing with my Car Club.

My 2004 Ram 1500 with 4.7 is now > 195k. Shifts fine, runs great, still doesn't burn oil. Although I noticed a loud clackity noise this morning (not the typical ticking when cold) and found my fan is loose. Haven't determined yet if it's just loose or if there are bearings worn out. Will probably switch to electric fan anyway and get me back a couple horses.

Default 2002 4.7

Lets see, Condenser fan motor, muffler, drivers side wheel bearing, new tires (good years are too soft) and sprayed every two years (Krown). That's it folks looks like I got it in 2002. Oh and an O2 sensor.

Default Just turned 145K

Picked it up used with 135K.. about a year ago.
2002 1500 4X4

So far, I've replaced the TPS, Radiator, O2 sensor, and...

I rebuilt the top end due to head gasket failure.. saved the heads at least..

Still need to fix the heater as driver side blows cold....

Rear end bearings were replaced as part of the deal when it was purchased.
