Their is a lady down the street from me who does rodeo all accross the U.S hauling a 36 foot gn horse trailer. She has 895,000 miles on 1997 2 wheel drive 12 valve 5 speed. I'm sure she has went through a few things like clutches and injector pumps but the engine has never had any serious work done on it. I bet nobody can show me a V-8,aluminum head diesel (Duramax or NEWER powerstroke) with that amount of miles.
Bs. theyre out there. Ive seen many when i worked at the Ford dealer. There are Duramaxes out there with it as well.
