    What is the most miles any of you have seen on a Duramax that is still running strong? They have a reputation of being "disposable" (no re-build), so what have you guys seen people get out of them?

    Most iv seen in person is bout 200 k but iv heard of people with alot more, Iv always wondered if the duramax could last as long as my 95 powerstroke with 430k and still go with out any major work. :cool:

    if you take good care of your truck, regular maintenance and don;t beat on it, it's last you a real long time, a friend of mine has a duramax dually with 220k, mostly highway miles but it still has the power the break the tires loose...

    I know of a local guy that had to finally have the motor done at 415,000 miles in an 02 Duramax 4x2 dually. However that is mostly highway miles pulling trailer if that helps

    I have seen one with 215,000 on it. My friends dad had a 1997 F-350 Dually 4x2 7.3 PSD he used for hauling trailers all over the country; when he traded it in, it had 453,000 with no major engine work. ;)
