Turbo failure percentages????

I often read of guys with turbo failure out here. I am starting to wonder if that is because only people with failures bother posting. I would like to start a thread that shows some of the owners with higher mileage on the origional turbo. Basically trying to understand if we are all doomed or if there is hope.

I am at 12k (low miles) and on the orgional turbo so far.

76,000 miles, 30 months of working. More than half of my total miles with 10,000 to 13,000 lbs of trailer behind the truck typically pulling 7% mountain grades here in Utah.

all original except the 3 solenoids in tranny and front steering stabilizer shock that were replaced at 35,900 miles. I also replace the shock with Rancho 9000 at 50,000 miles.

I've got 27k on mine been tuned since around 5k. I've ran it on anywhere between 40 and 200 horse, normally I just run it on 120 due to the lack of aftermarket parts out for these trucks. I would say change your oil sooner than when the little light comes on, also let it cool down.

lots of the failures are on the C&C trucks, which have a completely different turbo.. Many of the post you may be reading are on the C&C trucks... I know some of the p/u turbos have failed, but I do not believe its as rampat as it seems once you remove all the C&C trucks from the count..

Your on a forum so you see the majority of the problems due to users having issues and find this by google to find a fix. So it's a little biased. Our 2012 cab and chassis has 10k miles, all okay so far. My buddy has an 2011 pick up and the turbo went while towing a bobcat. I'm pretty sure he was towing on hot though. he's one of those geniuses with more $$$ than brains.
