That’s awesome!! I am at 320k myself and just had my 07 mega cab looked at and I am still on stock injectors and only have #6 down 6% and everything else looking great. These engines are amazing if taken care of!

Nope, only swap was water pump, injectors and injection pump. It has had edge, smarty and hp tuners for programming. had an afe stage 2 kit installed once upon a time as well.

The way it runs, i think 500k is doable.

Ordered a new ddrivers seat cushion & cover from genos today... Happy bday truck...

Congrats Steve, I like seeing high mileage trucks. Iím a 253k, but do expect the injectors and/or tranny to go in the next 50k. No symptoms, just figured theyíd need it by 300k. Appreciate all the tech you provide here.

Steve, I thought I remembered reading a while back you ran some Hot Shot Stiction Eliminator, is that accurate and have you used any more sense? I'm about to change the oil after doing a treatment and already noticed that what little "blow by" I had has seemed to disappear. Going to do the oil change and another round of ATF/2so; another 4 years or so and i'll be half way to your 400k

Working on my next broken heart.

Yes, its a regular additive on every oil change. OCI is @ 10k intervals using royal purple 15w-40 oil. I seem to be loosing about 1 quart now around 7k miles, which is not bad for 408k miles. I am happy to take that if I can make it to 500k before a teardown.

With the most recent trip into Idaho (~2000 miles), seems I should be able to pass that 500k mark. Motor still runs awesome.
