Just curious your mileage, hours, and year of truck. Want to see if mine are average.

173K, 5100 hours, and its a 2008.

i have 120K on my 15 and over 6000 hours. apparently the previous owner liked to have warm toes..... a lot.


The way i typically assess this is total miles / engine hours gives you trucks average MPH over its life. So in your case 173,000 / 5100 = ~34 MPH average. The higher the MPH the less idling the truck has done. In my case im closer to 20 MPH so my truck has idled a lot. A truck that was closer to 50-60 spent its whole life on the highway idling very very little, and a truck closer to 0 mph idles most of its life.

Got 25,130 miles on a 2016. I'll have to report back with the hours. She spends most of her time in the garage. Just did my first 5k mile oil change for the year since November of 2018 😂

Mine had 5800 hours and 150k miles. Before it was making big hp and drove it daily I idled alot. Whether it was winter to keep it warm, summer to keep it cold, it idled I'd let it run if I wasn't going to be in somewhere longer than a half hr.

Check this, 318800miles with 4329 hours. With the math above I'm at 73. Evidently my truck can fly.🤪


Some of the older trucks have been known to have the engine hours reset on their own for no apparent reason.

It's digital, so I don't think it rolled over. The first owner hauled over road, racked up almost 200k in 3 years,
when I got it.

Ball joints about 375,000. Did a turbo about 420,000. Transfer case about 650,000. Head gasket at 710,000. Water pump at 750,000. Rear end bearings at 850,000. Definitely can’t complain.
