"I have 298,XXX miles on it drives perfect for the age of this truck. Never had a problem with it until about a month ago had to change the alternator but thats expected on a 23 year old truck with this amount of miles."
"This is a follow up post. I owned this truck for 10+ years. Regular maint/with Valvoline HighMileage oil. replaced 1 a/c comp, 1 alt, 1 tranny. Engine lost head gasket at 361,300 miles. It still gets 18 MPG."
"My truck has been through mud, snow, even water coming over the hood. It has the original engine and transmission with over 540,000 miles and still runs like a monster. I just can't kill this 5.7 V8. If I ever total this truck, I'm gonna cry my eyes out."
