Default Just hit 150k miles!

I've only had the truck from about 100k and on, was wondering what you guys think I will probably see need work in the near future. Also how long do they estimate these HEMI's lasting?

don't fret over it,
i have reached 100,000 miles with my '09

my transmission filters have been changed
i am on the 2nd set of spark plugs
my rear end fluid has been changed
the radiator has been flushed
the brake rotors have been turned, the brake pads are new, the brake fluid has been flushed
the power steering fluid has been flushed
i bought mine new & just had the 5 year inspection to keep the Lifetime Drive Train Limited Warranty in effect

I depend on my Ram, it is my main source of income, i service it better then a taxi would need.
With regular services, you should be able to drive it for at least another 50,000 miles

Congrats on the mile marker! We have a 03 hemi 2500 at work that pulled 10,000 lbs since berth and stopped pulling around 150,000 cuz of the trans being a lil loose hahah. It has been the best truck in our fleet. We have fords too and the dodge has just been hands down the lowest cost of ownership. We had to rebuild the rear last season as the anti slip wore the outer cage. 1200 bucks and ball joints and front yokes and tune up all about $3000 bucks. It has 197,000 on it now and it is the favorite driver from most of out workers. So I believe we will get another yr out of it or 250,000 miles out of it. We service the oil every 4500 miles with wix filter and 10w30 dino oil. I wouldn't be scared to drive your ram for another 100,000 miles. Just open up your rear diff cover to see if you have wear on the outer cage of the anti slip that's if you have that. If you have an open diff no need to worry. Carry on and enjoy it.

I do have an OD with 3.55's really wish I had that limited slip tho. It's just crazy to think that I've only had the truck for about a year an half now and I've put 50k miles on it already! I stay on top of maintenance as well when I first got the truck I drove it for a week and my front left brake pad got pushed out of the shoe and the caliper was just pryin on the rotor was ruined. Had to have a complete and total break system over-haul. I've replaced all the spark plugs I change the oil regularly, I've never rally had any major problems wth the truck, besides the brake issue but I feel that was from neglect of changing the pads. My only real fear is that I've always heard about the downfall of all dodges being the tranny.
