my 03 only has 85,000, but my old truck had over 200,000. My buddy's old 87 he had, had rolled over 4 times and was about to roll again. Used oil like a bitch but still ran like a top.

233k+ but still runs good even with bad compression, loaded about 1/2 a ton on it (haybales + dad and myself) drove it in mud and rain to the barn from the far field, ran great =).

The wieght helped the tranny shift, gained speed slower, which helped it engage correctly. So thats a good thing, hope that if I let it shift right a few times it will go back to runnin right.

Like I said, trucks have a personality to, and my truck is tough, still kicken after 26 years of abuse!

damn straight, mine runs without brakelines, reverse will work for that XD, the tranny needs help shifting, (3spd auto), and the engine needs help starting, but once its running, it wont kill over.

We ran it to town and the tailpipe fell off and the engine kept chugging normally, I also hit a trailer with it, backed up and parked + cleaned up the mess, next to no damage, just shoved the trailer back.

Its like a bumper car XD
