Congrats!

Our "Big Silver" is coming up on 8 years. Still in showroom condition. We expect to easily go 30 years with Big Sil (or, till oil/gas no longer available).

Happy Birthday to the Redneck Express hauler.

You need to find you one of those early Cummins 5.9l 6bt as a present for that truck.

Happy birthday to the Redneck Express.
Was hoping my Chevy would last. It may, but it looks to be an expensive ride at this point.
How many miles does your truck have on it? Original motor?

She's at 176,581 on the original 360ci TBI V8 motor/transmission/interior, 85% of the paint job is original, though I have repainted the bed of the truck and touched up rust spots as they appeared.

66,000 odd miles have been under my ownership, and I've lost track of how many of those thousands had the camper on her back .

Joe, Happy birthday to the W200!! I have a friend that just sold his 1992 W-200 Ext cab with the Cummins and 5spd manual. His had 435,000 miles on the original engine and trans. Lots of minor maintenance, but not a rebuild at all! I think you are good for a few more miles before any rebuilds!
My F350 hit 10 years old this year, and just hit 35,000 miles! It only had 17,000 miles 2 years ago, so I have been racking up the miles, but I hope it is still looking as good as yours at 20!!!
Again, Happy birthday!!
