its been a long time. Didnt go west of the mississippi river but a few times this year.

and yup, 70,266 miles for the year on the truck.:gearjamin
That some miles on a truck in one year. Especially since you were down for what a month with the drive shaft issue? I put 40k a year on but its not anywhere close to what you do with yours :rof

I hit 68,564 miles. That's a ton of miles considering how long my truck was down, and how little I've used it this year.

I got 71k on the work truck, and it has been down right at 8 weeks this year. It's starting off the new year right waiting on a new transfer case at the dealer now. I put 7500 on the dealers loaner the last time it was in for 4 weeks. Not sure what all I have put on the other trucks in our fleet, but I would venture a guess that I would be real close to 85k for the year. Here's to the hope that 2012 will get to 120k real quick and my company turns this junker in for another one!!!

Haven't stopped. Still doing my one a week (or 2 this week). Just figured I ho'd up my post count pretty good with this thread so I'd give it a break for 2012. :neener


That was a fun ride today, all the snow and ice and a 31 ft'er. Those Michelin Ltx winters gripped good :)

A little over 350,000.

I noticed last winter my trans lines starting to seep a little. Weather got warm and they stopped. Changing my oil this week I noticed a little more than a seep. Guess I better change them.

Anyone got a how to link handy? Im tired & lazy.

Yes, still on my original and stock lines. I got a deal on a set of stockers too, so just going to use 'em. If the oe ones lasted me 350+........

I did mine last fall. what a pain in the ass. I did read a how too. the thing is after you unhook the lines, (the easy part) the rest was just a damn fight, nothing but a fight.

3 slides, corian counters, nice looking wood, bar/island in kitchen, edgeless or frameless Windows - whatever they call 'em. Sharp looking trailer, turns some heads on the highway too.

I do my best to pick em up a few weeks early and do a circle tour around lake michigan just to make sure the trailer is good to go for the customers. As long as I deodorize the stink pickle tank everything is ok.
