I was at a big-o tires today and when they took my truck back a guy came out where I was sitting. He told me that he loved my truck and that I had many more miles to go with her. I said yea I think it should be real reliable and he said no I have a 07 with the same 5.7 with over 400,000. I couldn't quite believe it but he showed me the odometer and sure enough. Nothing but religious maintenance. I'm pretty impressed that's for sure!!!

Now, you are speaking my language! None of this, "I have 12,000 trouble free miles!" mess. I'm talking real miles!

Good news for me...if my math is correct, my 2007 should last 25 more years with the miles I put on it per year :yikes:
Yep, that's what I want, like my '93 Dakota, 20 years old and still going strong! Only thing wrong is odometer broke about 9 years ago at 120,000 miles, so I don't know how many miles on it now, but the thing has been the best vehicle I've ever owned! Yep, a Dodge! V6 3.9L engine. I digress, we're talking Tundra here. I like that they last a long time! I keep all my stuff a long time, hey, I like old things! Otherwise, I wouldn't like meself.

Wow, is this business or pleasure?

Dodge just makes their wiring a nightmare. Have you seen some models with taillight computer chips installed? Those get really pricy to replace.

Owww $100k in gas. :| I sure hope that the truck was an absolute requirement for work. Otherwise he could have driven a Camry and saved $50k.

My guess would be that someone who puts that many miles on a truck is doing it for work.

If so, sure, $100k or so in gas, $200k or so in deductions (or mileage reimbursements), just for mileage :D

If I drive my personal vehicle for work, my employer cuts me a check for $.55/mile. Even guzzling gas, I make money. When I travel out of state to check on my rental, I get .55/mile as a business deduction, which is almost 3 to 1 on my money :D
