Question Miles

I have 26,400 miles on my 08. All I had to do so far is put front wheel bearings in. Not sure why.

My headgaskets blew at 85,000 miles but we did overheat the motor when the overflow tank sprung a leak. I bought a long block from S and J Engines in Spokane. Very happy with the new motor, started right up, runs great and gets around 20 mpg now.

161k miles no major engine problems. I had to rebuild my rear after the pinion bearings went.

38,000 on my '02 I've only had it a few days but as far as I know it's just been maintained with nothing major done to it. It was mostly garage kept by an elderly gentleman.

105k. I was all ready to do an engine swap but I think my truck is messin' with me now. Been running like a Swiss clock the last few days. The random oil pressure drop hasn't happened in a while and the cold clack goes away in under a minute. Little bitch! I'm still prepping to do the swap though.
