I'm not sure if I can post this here.

So here goes...

Who has the highest mileage 4th Generation Hemi 5.7 on this forum without having done any work internally?

I bought my 2014 RAM with 117,000 on it and I have now 123,000 on it without any problems.
I change the oil and filter every 5k and all seem to be running fine so far.
How many miles do the Hemi 5.7's achieve before needing attention internally?

A friend has a 2003 5.7 in a 1/2 ton with original trans and motor. Over 375,000 miles…….runs drive thru quick lube conventional 5w30 or off the shelf 5w30 with a generic filter. 3,000-5,000 mile intervals

He says…

Iv never seen the odometer yet personally

Bought it used with a bit over 100,000 and he towed a 6,000 lbs work trailer daily for about 5 years with it as a Union carpenter.

Still drives it every day but no more trailer. Takes it on vacation to the U.P. Too

Edit:

Scariest part, and I wished him luck after hearing this, trans has never had a fluid filter change since he has owned it!!!!! No clue if the previous owner did it either. His dad told hom when he was a kid that trans fluid changes were not a good idea.. lol.

Wow, this is truly amazing!!!

This is my first full size truck and first RAM.

When were renting trucks in Arizona to move from house to house I found the RAM was the best fit for me.

I am amazed at what they offered on the 2014 RAM. I feel real lucky to stumble upon this used vehicle.

All the other RAM's I test drove before this one were in really sad shape.

I bought a 2014 Sport 4wd 5.7 brand new in Dec. 2013. Just rolled 160,000 miles. It has over 25k miles towing heavy trailers and has been used as a truck. It has never left me anywhere. I've had to replace manifold bolts on both sides and a few batteries. It has had the common ZF transmission shudder since 135k miles and the map lights are burned out but everything else works like new! I run the Pennzoil platinum high mileage 5w20 and Fram synthetic filter. Best truck I've owned.

I have to laugh. A few years ago owners of Gen-4's (before they were old enough to stack up 'high-miles') were claiming all over this board (and others) the engines wouldn't last very long (cam/hemi-tic, etc). Now we're starting to see a lot of high-mile trucks. I guess the point is, sure some fail early (maybe too many) but you never know.

Mine's got 175k. Runs great ...but I don't put too many miles on a yr anymore.

2017 with 153K miles, no ticks or weird noises, remote start most of the time. Oil changed at the dealer before it hits 0%. My daily driver and runs like a top. Oh yeah, I do shut the MDS off every time it goes in drive. Parked outside all year.
