My 99 has 168, 607 miles on it. I take care of my truck. It should last me way past 200k. Take care of your truck, and it'll take care of you.

My 3.slow realy isnt too bad, however It just rolled over to 43,000 and now the check engine light is on and it is running like ****! I put JBA headers on it right after I purchased it and that seemed to really help on the power issue. I am gonna take it to the shop later and see what the problem is. If its the coil pack its gonna get a screamin demon from Under dog performance! Otherwise, no problems yet.
