Here's my "old iron". Purchased new in 2001. Upgraded Load Range "E" tires, upgraded shocks, Ford SuperDuty Transmission oil cooler mod, SCT Tuner with custom towing tune, Flowmaster exhaust, towing mirrors. Future mod this winter: 4:10 gears in preparation for towing a White Hawk 28 DSBH next spring.

2000 dodge ram with 239000 miles. I am consistently the oldest truck by far in the campgrounds most trucks are just a few model years old that I can see. someone has money! it still looks good and runs good.

We believe that newer isn't always better. Six year old Tundra with 99,000 on the clock. Previous 'Yota had 150,000 on her. I remember my younger years when I just got plain bored with my wheels. That doesn't happen much any more. If it ain't broke, don't replace it.

A Toyota with under 100K on it? Come back AFTER it's broken-in.

I actually like having one of the older trucks in the campground. It's almost like a badge of honor!

We replaced our old and gold 2001 GMC 2500HD (8.1/Allison) with a 2015 F350 Powerstroke last year. Great truck with low miles (about 77,000) but I was planning a cross country trip and just didn't trust the old iron although it was in great shape and probably would have been ok.

If GM still made the 2500 or 3500HD's with a big block gasser and the Allison trans, I would have bought another one instead of the diesel.

Our old truck was a 2004 Silverado, 5.3 V8, with 183,000 km (~114,000 miles). Had to get rid of it because the repairs started being more than the truck was worth -- a suspected blown head gasket. Too bad, it was a nice truck.
