I have 143,000 on stock bolts and gaskets right now. Quickly approaching the 150,000 mile threshold. I am relatively new to diesel's and the Org. Do your research and listen to the "Org Vet's," and you will be good to go. I spent several months on here, before I bought my truck, just doing research into what I needed to do to make my truck relaible for what I need. Knowledge and preventative maintenance are key to these trucks! That and a couple mods any you will be set.
The mods I did for reliability were EGR delete, coolant filter, oil bypass filter, CTS (monitoring). I have had a couple of hick ups since then, but nothing out of the ordinary for a higher milage vehicle (ball joints, brakes, etc).
Good luck. I hope I make it over 250,000 on my stock bolts, but only time will tell!!!
