    I know im still a long ways off, but it's my goal to have this truck make a million miles. I figured I would make a thread to document mileage milestones and any issues I have along the way.

    My first posts were about two years ago and at that point i had around 230K miles on my truck. I now average about 70K miles a year.

    Here's a complete list of things i have done to my truck (aside from religiously maintaining it):

    U joint somewhere in the 100k's (70$)
    OEM Crankshaft sensor at about 230k (100$ish)
    Rebuilt Alternator at about 345k ($60)
    Walker Catalytic Converter at about 365k ($275 before $50mail in rebate)
    Valve Cover Gasket at 395k (35$)

    Still on original rear drum brakes! Just had them checked again and they still have meat on them!

    More updates as they come!

    I usually change it every 40k or so. I do a ton of interstate driving, rarely a light tow. Change oil every 5k with whatever 5w30 high mileage oil is on special at autozone.

    Welcome and I hope you reach your goal. Just take care of her as you have and it should work out. Incidentally, I love Crossville. Beautiful area. My cousin went to medical school there.

    Again, welcome to TW

    Another 4 banger guy here with the same goal! I plan to drive mine til she quits, if that ever happens! So far, I have almost 30k, got a long ways before I catch up to you! Will be watching this thread, any pics of said 4 banger? I want to see how it's held up to the test of time and mileage.

    I'm going to watch this thread. I think that it's a great goal to have. I have 987,000 km's before I hit a million. I'll be there one day.

    Awesome OP! That puts a smile on my face knowing I can get well over 300k miles out of my truck with normal maintenance!

    Me too! I'm sure that you can't say that with other brands out there.

    That is awesome. I'm hoping to get reliable 400 000kms or more out of this thing. Good to know I stand a decent chance.

    Any pics of your truck?
