    How many 4th gen 5.7 out there with over 200k ?

    300k?

    How many hours ?
    Did you have to replace anything out of the normal?


    I have a 2015 im putting about 30k miles a year on. I am close to 120k and kind-of want to trade it in....but on the other side..ive taken pretty good care of it..and most of my miles are 65mph on an easy 30 mile long road to work...I kind of want to see how long I can make it go. I've never kept a vehicle past 200k.

    You might want to add that people with over 200k also list their idle hours versus run hours. Many opinions are that high idle hours = cam & lifter failure. Also they should list if they have replaced their cam & or lifters.

    Every vehicle I've owned that was maintained enough to go 200k and was still running made it to 300+. Then in my case by then were usually wrecked and salvaged.

    After graduating drag racing on back country roads, most of my vehicles exceeded 200k and were still running when I sold them. I just replaced my 06 Corolla this Spring. It had over 750k when I gave it away. My 97 Ram had over 260k when I traded it in on a Jeep.

    Quality self maintenance, quality oil, and quality filters make all the difference.

    I've never cared for giving shops my business.I have done at least 99%of all my maintenance and repair.Including rebuilds,suspension work and fluid changes.It's the way I roll.Shops are a hassle,can do shoddy work and are overpriced on most things imo.And some won't even stand behind their work as they should

    Yes, it's a 8 speed for 3.21 set up and it never has been serviced. Best transmission I've ever had.
