Hey everyone...sorry I've been so lazy in posting but I am now pushing 1.1 million miles and not much has changed. Recent water pump, rear brake pads, tires and control arms. Been on same injectors since April 2016 and over 200k on them.

I'll get on laptop later and update with any other details. 👍

Thatís awesome! I have high hopes for my LB7 that I just purchased thatís never been tuned. Of course I got a deal on it because it needs injectors, but hopefully itíll be a good truck.

Here's the truck as of today... Cleaning it up a little bit and put some Back to Black on the trim. Also put in new DRL bulbs, changed the fuel filter and took an oil sample to get it analyzed. I haven't done an oil analysis since around 600k miles. I also re-torqued the cab mount bolts. I put new mounts in a couple years ago but I feel they might have settled in or something. Felt like they were a little loose.

I'll post an update with the oil analysis results.

Well, the current odometer reading is stuck at 999,999. I've been using the MileIQ app to track mileage now since I have to do it for business mileage anyways. I am currently at a little over 1,105,000. I'll get the odometer fixed soon, I hope.

Wow, I just found this thread. A million plus, that's something, mainly dedication by the owner. What's really impressive from a mechanical standpoint is that she took a moonshot on ether at such a young age and still made a million miles and is still going!
I run an LML commercially and have about 273k on it, still going strong albeit after a piston meltdown a couple of months ago. Due to all the emissions hoopla, I've considered looking for a nice LB7 truck so I could leave it stock and not be concerned with taking it coast to coast. This story gives me hope in that endeavor.

Good luck with your next million brother!

Still on original turbo but thinking I might want to get it checked. She's smoking a little coal under load...not much but just a little and it seems to be something new, within the last few months. Something a little beyond what the norm has always been. It's not a lot, though and power levels seem to be normal.

As an LB7 owner, I pretty much hate any smoke coming from my exhaust!

Here's a pic of my odometer... I was really bummed that it got stuck at 999,999. I was hoping it would have read 1,000,000 and would have settled for a flip to zero but nope.... it's stuck. I can't get that closure! lol

So basically here is how I have calculated my miles.... I've always just gone off the odometer even though I know it is incorrect and has been shorting me. The larger tire has thrown the numbers off. Example... when my cruise is set at 70mph, multiple GPS devices have me around 75-76mph. This is roughly about a 9% difference. In order to never have my claim questioned, I have only claimed a 5% difference.

When the odometer hit 999,999 I began using that MileIQ app to track mileage for work and service intervals. I then added in 5% correction factor so that my truck would have 1,050,000 miles and have been using GPS from that point.

So as of today I calculate and claim 1,106,885 miles....even though it's really higher. My next goal is 1.25 million.

Balance rates are today.... I've got my eye on #5. It goes back an forth but is flirting more with an out of spec reading lately. I installed these 8 in April, 2016. They are my 5th set...not 6th that I said earlier.
