Friend told me today his 6.4 flew to crap at 155000. For above post I have a 2006 3500 best truck i ever had has 245000 on it now rebuilt front end once. It is overloaded all the time and now beats around farm. Just normal wear parts. First 100000 it was gate delivery truck. Did so well i bought another new dmax in 16. Still have a 99 powerstroke my dad bought new. I had a cummins for six weeks, all i could take!

Yes wear parts was our problem, and more so the hours it took to replace the worn out parts. Water pump, power steering hoses and pump and not at the same time. Rebuild the front end twice and still couldn't get 50k out of a set of tires. Five injectors at three different times, and 4 front hub and bearing assemblies. The brakes and rotors don't hold up like a Ram or Ford. But the ride of a Chevrolet 3500 4x4 is the best out of all of them.
If we'd of know this we'd of picked our own cotton.
