Default how many faithful miles does your ram have

my 06 that i have had for 4 years now just rolled over to 140k and i couldnt be happier. it still runs like a new truck and ive never had to do a single heavy repair. just curious the life of some of your trucks.

Little over 122,000, had to change transmission at just before 120,000. Other than minor stuff (battery, alternator) that's the only major thing.

my trans has acted up some since i have owned it but i think its just a minor valve body issue. just early shifting. this is my first dodge and i am extremely happy. i will certainly go with another one.

136k on engine and trans. considering what's been done and what the Pumpkin has been through over 9 years i am very happy. I doubt i buy another Ram as i will just keep rebuilding this one.

thats no good. my girl hit one in mine also. bent the bumper a lil and cracked the upper plastic but its all good. i also need to replace my rotors except in the rear. i may go the drilled and slotted route. no oil leaks i believe but i need to replace my rear seal on the trans.
