I know a few people that have Dodges w/Cummins Turbo Diesels that commute to the oil fields in North Dakota and coals mines in Wyoming. Some have well over 300,000 miles on them and still going strong.

I do, I drive a lot, anytime we go anywhere, we take my truck.
 
Anytime, my dad needs hay I haul it.
 
Before SWFA, I was the VP of operations for Domino's Pizza. All the stores south of IH 20 to Waco were in my territory.
 
I was a fixer, management issues, store issues, training. new product roll out, and ect....Literally spent seven years on the road. Never turned the truck off.
 
Before that, I was in the police academy, wanted to be a cop, and the academy was 45 mins from the house.
 
Needless to say I'm no stranger to the road.
 
Thank for the links G, that helps.

My '02 Powerstroke has around 75k but its not my daily driver, if it was I'd be well over 200k.

7.3.. great motor, very reliable.


I don't think the 6.0's hit the streets until sometime in '03.

Best motor they made in my opinion. But I'm hearing great things about their new 6.7 though.

Isn't their two pumps in that system? I cannot remember for sure but we have had several Cummins trucks and in those years power fade was usually one of the two pumps.

Edited for spelling
