I have an 04 2500 LB7 that I bought recently and I have 87k on it. I am hoping to get over 200k with this truck and 300k would be even better. Just curious what the rest of you guys have on your trucks and how are they holding up when they get into the higher mileage?

Thank you

I would sure hope a duramax would last 300k! The news gassers are getting that. I only have 69k on my 2004.5 but hope to have atleast another 200k trouble free miles.

I have 296K on my 02. I got it 14 months ago with 270k on it. To my knowledge the only major repairs to it have been the trans at 70K and the injectors at 150K. Im throwing a lot of black smoke so I had the injectors checked a few months ago. The mechanic said theyre perfect and has never seen a dmax with that many miles run so well. I burn a quart of oil every 5k. Not bad for almost 300K.

DMAX1986 that is great to hear, because I was hoping I didn't make a mistake in buying the Duramax over the Cummins which I know can get a lot of miles on it pretty easily. I just bought this and have to pay for it for awhile and I love the truck and I hope to keep it long after its paid off.
