ONE TOUGH TRUCK. I bought the truck with 72,000 miles. I hauled kids all over the country for sports. About 10 years ago I put 1 ton springs under her and have been using her for hauling weight to and from Reno and Vegas. We live in the center of Nevada so she puts on about half her miles in the dirt in the mountains. I do regular mainenance, the largest item's that has ever failed has been the water pump and a/c compressor. Her 350 engine doesnt burn any oil between changes. Run's clean, sounds great and still gets 15mpg hwy. Her AL60E Trans has never given me a moments problem. I've been told I should think about changing the engine and tranny out soon but they both run so strong I just cant justify it, after all she only has 296,000 miles on her. I'm betting she will still be running strong at 400,000 miles, Do we have any takers?
