    A guy over on the DP just took the truck in on trade. I guess there's another 30k undocumented miles on it from a short period when the OD wasn't working. I'm awaiting more details, but I just figured I'd share for now:

    I wonder what the trade in value would be? It would be nice to see it hit 1 mill.

    Are there any pictures of the truck? Just curious what it looks like... How much work has been done to that truck to get to that kind of milage?

    I assume nothing has been done to it, especially if it was a hotshot truck. A few years back there was an 01 with over 850k on it, all original aside from a couple sets of injectors. Being an 05 injectors wouldn't even be an issue.

    No other pics or details yet, but I'll post more if and when I get them.

    I want to buy it!!!

    It would be fun to have that truck to see how many miles it would run up to... Does the guy want to sell it?

    Too bad GM doesn't actually make the Dmax, its an Isuzu!.....maybe that's a good thing LOL....Regardless, I sure love mine!

    That's not the case. GM used Isuzu's help with the initial design, but Isuzu never produced anything. They were originally a paired company, the plant right here in the good ol US of A. GM bought Isuzu's share out years back and its been 100% owned by GM since. Duramax is GM and always has been. You won't find it in any other vehicle besides GM, not even in an Isuzu. Isuzu's help was a good thing, they've been around for nearly 100 years and GM used their engines in MD trucks for quite some time. That's why a lot of dealerships are "Certified Isuzu" repair centers.

    My GMC w5500 say's powered by isuzu right on the front of the truck. Must not be the case of heavier gm trucks. That many miles on a truck is something else, makes me want to keep one long enough to give it a try.

    Adam - your truck doesnt have a duramax in it, its got a 5.2 izuzu, designed and built by them...

    That's basically 8 hours of freeway driving a day for 5 years! Why would anyone, under any circumstances, drive a pickup truck that many miles. Most semis don't get driven that much. I'd say that guy got his money out of that truck. I wonder if he changed his oil every 2 weeks? That's amazing.
