Default Who has the highest mileage (running) D21?

I was curious to see who has put the most miles on their Hardbody.

My 86.5 had about 150K before a localized flood wiped the computer and caused all kinds of electrical havoc. It was running great before THAT happened.

I also had an '89 extended cab V6 SE 5sp 4WD w/170K which I donated to a local charity. It was also a good truck and I forgot why I got rid of it....

I'd have to check but last I looked mine had 287k. When I bought it, the previous owner said that the engine had been rebuilt 90k previously but he didn't have receipts so who knows what was actually done.

... Just noticed the title. Does idling count as running?

if you post your mileage post whether or not you are on the original block, head, head gasket or transmission. if those are all replaced it means nothing.

its like that dodge thats touting something like 700k but its on its 4th motor, 3rd rear end and 5th transmission. that means nothing in regards to longevity.

My 86.5 is sitting at 197k on the speedo, but it hasnt worked in years. I figure I'm closer to 220-230k.

156k miles

4/86 4x4 SE-V6
Headers aren't factory nor are the gauges. That's it outside normal maintenance. Oh, I've changed the tranny fluid and it's on its 3rd set of tires. Probably factory shocks and it finally got.its first ever alignment.

93 ka at 230k. Stock tranny, but I think the engine may have been torn apart and refurbished at some point before I got a hold of it.
