The gave me a 800k and a 900k but when I hit a million, they sent me a hat. Looks like they have a badge now.

That's a lot of miles in a P/U truck.

I did it too, does this count?

If I stayed a little longer I would have a two million plaque.



But I drove this to get it

I always thought the boat and trailer goes behind the truck. Learn something new every day.

Well if look, you will see that there is one there too, now if he was pushing one with the front bumper too ... that would be truly impressive.

Great accomplishment! Hard miles are those too so recognizing the quality of the vehicle has to be forthcoming as well.

We expedite so we operate 26'/<26k box trucks and have had many go beyond the Mil before an overhaul that could have waited another 250k! Start with a good product, take care of it, and you reap the rewards. I'm working on 3 Million miles now that I've come out of retirement so as to maintain my sanity, lol. Won't make it though as I just piddle basically doing home deliveries of these new Samsung Smart TV's that are selling like wildfire here in the ATL. Absolutely bad to the bone and the plasma versions have an even deeper color and overall view that a 60" will just take over a 30x30 room. The 75" models are just breathtaking.

Very Cool, I had a brick mason a year or so ago that had a chevy diesel with well over 1 million miles on it......it was a 90's model truck. He also had a Ford with the 7.3 that had close to 800K.

Both trucks had regular maintenance and nothing else, I was pretty impressed.

Tough to beat an ol' CH w/E7 power.
It was not uncommon for UPS to bring them to my dealership w/1.5-2.5 million on them to swing a new engine.
Their trucks are extremely well maintained, and they ran great w/those miles.
Engines were never apart, just taken care of.
You guys push the hell out of them, I've already seen their 2013's w/200-300k on them , trucks that are 1 1/2 years in service!!

To the OP, that's awesome!
From what I've seen I down a Dodge w/Cummins power any day, maybe an older 7.3 power stroke, but I know way too much about the 6.0 and the Duramax to own one..
Just my $.02

Great event !
UH, the whole truck has over a million miles on it, 10-4. Don't forget, he was TOWING something at least 50% of the time.
