Bought a 2004 Dodge 2500HD with 5.9HO Cummins a month or so ago. Sporting right at 80k on her, amazing truck inside and out. Can't imagine giving her up for anything else!

I had a 1995 F350 dually and it was always good to me but made the decision to sell it and move up to a 2011 F250 with the 6.7 . I love the new to me truck, its quieter and stronger pulling but none are without mechanicals so I still spend money on maintenance and still have problems with the newer one

1999 Suburban 2500 with 248,000 miles. She's got a new front end and the driveline is getting an upgrade nose to tail soon. Next the motor gets some love in the upgrade/H.P. department and I'll keep this old iron on the road as long as possible.

My tow truck is a '96 Chevy crew cab dually with a 454. We've owned the truck since the spring of 2000. It had about 85,000 miles on it when we bought it, and it is a little over 159,000 now. We paid $13,000 when we bought it. It used to haul my race car all over the state of Texas, but it is devoted to only hauling our fifth wheel now.

We're having to spend a little money on it this year. The air conditioner needed a little attention, the heater hose fitting on the intake corroded (common on all GM trucks from that era), the intake gasket started leaking a little water, and the cap and rotor needed to be replaced. In the coming weeks, I'll be replacing the plugs and the wires. We're spending maybe a thousand bucks on maintenance this year.

There's no way I can justify spending 60-80 grand for a new tow vehicle I will drive a couple thousand miles per year. My old gas hog suits me just fine.

My fully loaded Ram ie 12 yrs old, serviced with Synthetics since new. It pulls with gusto and very comfy to drive. I have 184000 kms which is about 112000 miles. Runs and still looks great, every time I take it for service, I get comments or offers to buy it from the dealer.
