That's diesel for you. I'm not surprised. OTR (over the road) trucks, don't even get an in chassis rebuild until they've got 500K on them. A million miles on a big rig is nothing. Granted, big rigs do have sleeved cylinders, but then again, with the cross hatching still visible at 798K miles, I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Proper maintenance is all it takes. So lets hear it for takin care of your truck, so it'll take care of you.

Weve got an old 7.3 farm truck that only hauls hay on the farm. Hasnt had an ispections sticker in at least 6 years. Change the oil ever 3,000 or so and absolutely NO problems out of it. Last time I fed hay in it, I believe the odo read 445,000 miles. Darn sure got our money out of it!
