    This is the first, and probably the only, time in my life that I have rolled 200K on an odometer. These Freightliners are holding up well, mine is still in good shape even with 200K on it.

    I've got 226,XXX on mine and she's just vetting broken in.

    I've also driven one with 370 something that was frightening to say the least.

    Most of my package cars had many more miles but not on the original engine.

    We can give some credit 2 our sturdy mechanics for making them run with that many miles.

    You would think...but.... Crawl unDer one and look around. Everything is really engineered to be replaced fairly easily.

    In the "old days" they would only scrap them when their frames couldn't stand anymore welding. They were pretty much bullet proof other than the engines. Those old 300ci six cylinder Ford engines were a work horse but they didn't have a long shelf life when they were used in the bigger trucks.

    I saw more of the GMC 292 sixes. Those were tanks for sure.

    Haha, can't be too new if you have a fancy digital readout. The most I've actually seen was about 350,000. I'm in a building with mostly newish automatics though.

    jumpman23 Oh Yeah

    Cant beat having an automatic, like being on vacation lol. I don't ever want to go back to a manual tranny forget that junk lol.

    My last truck retired with 333K (29 year old truck) and that's city miles with rough torn up roads and pot holes. My new hotness has less than 20k.
