Thats good to hear! I have to say I think I will keep this truck for a long long time. I'll do what I want with it and keep it around for hauling wood or things I need and still have be a new dodge.

I sure hope I have as many trouble free miles as y'all do! Right now I'm at 47,275 on the clock. Two pinion seals, both under warranty and evaporator core, fixed courtesy of my MaxCare warranty. Other than that, just regular maintenance, oil changes, tune up and tire rotations.

Bought mine new in 2004, 4.7 with exterior trim upgrades. I've got over 150,000 miles and only problem I've had is a rocker arm fell off giving me the impression of a blown head gasket. It's torn down now while I replace all timing chains and guides. Hope to have up and running soon. Truck still has the original battery. Love my Ram.

Default 108k on my 2002 Ram 4.7

I have 108k on my 2002 Ram 4.7 SLT, 2WD, Auto.

And yes it still has the original heads. And the original differential.

Except for routine and typical older-truck stuff, I haven't had any problems.

And one other thing that I HAVE NOT had for five years: TRUCK PAYMENTS!

You won't hear me complaining. Well, not too much anyway.

Not that I'm setting any records here, but I have over 70k miles on my 2010 now. I drive quite a bit. Ill likely have ~120k by the time it's paid off. Only real issue I've had is the left rear door lock motor has failed. Still have yet to repair that. Love this truck. Love the comfort, ample power, and great mpg for a truck. I also intend to keep this truck "forever". If I ever have engine issues I'll rebuild it with some upgrades.
