These are light duty engines. I think 300,000+ miles is impressive for any light duty engine, especially considering the hard use that Vern put them through. Let's review:No doubt it is a lot of miles on the truck. I’m way more impressed with the durability of the transmission than the motor. I guess it’s nice that they lasted as long as they did, but in the world of engines I don’t feel like they lasted that long.
In the transport world, does it cost more money to keep both trucks in commercial operation compared to running just one truck?Been using it a lot lately. I will use the Cummins more this summer. It’s nice having two so that at oil / tire change time I can do it when it’s convenient to me.
It already flipped. You can read about it here: (158) 1 million kilometers your odometer will stop | RAM 1500 Diesel Forum@VernDiesel be sure and take a photos of the odometer at 999,000 and 1,000,000 it will interesting to see if it flips or adds another digit besides this will go well with that photo you took when you had the speedo at 115 mph that was great!
How is it fake news? The title says, "900,000 miles". He has 900,000 miles on his truck.If he's had to put 3 engines in it, it is fake news.
Here's what he said, "Because of already owning a 2014 and fuel economy we have used this engine to tow Airstream TTs commercially. An aftermarket tune has proven to be a good investment. 371,000 miles my first one pushed a head gasket due to low coolant from an EGR cooler leak. Bought a new warrantied replacement engine very cheap and put it in with an EGR cooler delete to keep this from happening again. It cracked a head at 423,000 miles. Business partner has a 2015 his fuel pump imploded filling a cylinder in his at 452,000 miles. Another forum member has 517,000 on his still rolling. For a disposable uber fuel efficient motor and with emissions beating tune its got pros & cons."Bio
I think it is #1 423K and #2 371K
Nah, we all win by keeping each other in check. Sometimes our memories are accurate and sometimes they aren't. It's a big forum with lots of moving parts to keep track of.You win!
