wow, nice to see these motors last that long, sadly I don't think my 99 Ram 1500 with 104k I sold to a highschooler will last that long, everytime I see it drive by my house its covered in mud and I mean covered.

Mine is a '97 5.2 with 256k. Runs like new though. I use whatever oil I can get my hands on, basically, I just change it frequently. The previous owner used it in salt water tho, so I've had to replace the rear differential. I take it mudding once in a while and this has caused me to get new bearings and new break lines. Its a crew cab. Couldn't be happier with this truck.

I had a 1991 D150 with the 318 in it. When I sold it it had a lil over 425K miles on it. That truck was awesome it still ran like a chap, as long you take care of your ride it will last that long if not LONGER!
