2006 with 107,000ish. I change the oil regularly with Castrol SynBlend, and just regular maintenance.

I'm about to Seafoam the intake, change plugs, do coolant flush, replace old hoses, change water pump, flush tranny, flush PS.

Then, she's paid off at the end of the year and gets new exhaust, bedliner, front lights, and replacement nerf bars.

Heck, I might even wash her.

2005 (bought 12/05) 141,000 miles. Must say, for my first dodge, this has held up pretty good. Only major repairs: Torque converter at 112,000 (passing someone at 65 and trans downshifted hard and spun the tabs), As far as motor, never any actual breakdown but did have to change a water pump at 115,000 due to a gasket leak while on a trip. Pump was fine but since I was there, replaced the pump. As far as the rest of the truck, I just put XRF lower ball joints and upper control arms. Originals were just starting to make some noise. I went with XRF and saved quite a bit of money.
