How long can a truck last? How about a Ram heavy duty truck with a Cummins engine? Here is just one example – a 2004 Ram HD 3500 single rear wheel that has just over 365,000 miles on the clock. Is that a lot of miles? This is what we are trying to get to the bottom of.

We understand that 365,000 miles is not the record for a heavy duty Ram truck, so we need your help. If you own a Dodge/Ram HD Cummins diesel truck with more miles and an original engine/turbo/transmission – please send us image of the odometer and images of the truck to firstname.lastname@example.org We also would like to know what maintenance, service, or repairs you had to do to the truck. Tell us a bit of the history of the truck and how you use it.
The truck you see here was found for sale in Texas, and this one powered by the 5.9L straight-six Cummins turbo-diesel with a rating of 325 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque when it was new.
The sales ad for this truck says that it was drive “mostly on the highway” and that it “had very few 5th-wheel towing miles”. Indeed, the interior of this truck looks very good for the age and mileage.
Please use the comments section below or email us your Ram Cummins truck stories. We would really like to find the highest mileage Ram HD diesel truck out there? Could there be a 1 million mile Cummins diesel out there?
