    I own 3 Chevy trucks, well one Chevy and two GMC's, but you get the point. 1997 GMC Sierra K1500...seen a pretty busy life, pulls around Bobcats and mini ex's, plows every winter, is the back up landscape truck and my personal truck, it has roughly around 260,000 miles with the original 305 motor, with no signs of slowing down.

    Next is my 1992 GMC K2500, just picked it up last year and have worked it everyday since I picked it up, no major maitenance has been done since new other than typical wear and tear items and a few tune ups, 8 foot bed and 8 lug wheels, this truck gets worked and beat by my guys every day and still starts and goes. 210,000 miles

    And last is my 1999 3500HD Chevy w/6.5. 202,000 miles today and the only thing that has been done to this truck is the PMD. Truck gets plowed every winter and worked every day in the summer. None of my trucks has ever left me stranded.

    I do however, do ALL maitenance and grease these trucks once a month unless I drive a lot more than usual, oil gets changed every 2500-3000 miles in these trucks and are exceptionally clean for their age. If you take care of them they will definitley take care of you!

    She has been great to me. Other than many sets of tires no major repairs have been needed. I change the oil at 3500 miles on average. I own a bagel shop and make wholesale deliveries everyday with the truck. in the winter I plow & salt my lot and several others near by.

    I have seen many GM trucks pass the 200K mark. Like anything, take care of it and it will take care of you.

    Words to live by. :mechanic:

    I sold a 1989 GMC 350 Western set-up with 269,000 on it 5 years ago. It is still going strong (know the buyer) and it plowed every year since new.

    Congrats!!! That really makes me feel good because I just bought a 2006 Silverado 2500HD extended cab with 166,000 miles on it. Everyone was telling me I was crazy but hey the truck is only 4 years old and looks like it was taken care of very well so for $10,000 I went for it!

    92 chevy 1500 324k just the other day! when i bought it they just put a new motor in it because he said the oil presure was below 40 while driving, so he got another used crate motor and dropped her in. now she had like 40k on it all of everything in brand new. i would not doubt to buy an 04-06 chevy hd with 180k!

    99 3500 dump with 210,560 on it. Its been a real good work truck. Plowed it whole life so it had a few tran's. 3 I think. The original motor went at 200,000 2 years ago. Put a good used one back in and its good to go. We pretty much just use it to plow now.

    I know a guy that works for an excavation company. His 2500 HD with the 6.0 has 286K and is used to plow commercially with a Boss V plow. Original drivetrain.
    I've got 1100 miles on my 2011 and may never see 200k as long as I own it.
