They are all good till they break. I have 2 ram 3500"s. An 04 and an 07. I make my living with these trucks. In total, my major repairs have been 3 transmissions, 1 transfer case, 1 front differential, 2 front drive shafts and one rear drive shaft. The milage on the 04 is 1,103,000 and the 07 is 1,801,000. Yes that's millions. And they work fairly hard. Original motors, turbos and injectors. This is my living so it's dodge for me! Like I said, they're all good.

The difference between you and many is that you're using your trucks appropriately, working them as intended.
Too many people buy diesels and let them sit for long periods of time with an occasional driveway idle or drive around the neighborhood which is diesel abuse. Then they wonder why they have issues.
If you want them to last, get out and work it or go buy a gasser.

Looks like you are practicing driving in that parking lot, good for you. Maybe you will start missing curbs.... Congrats on the new TV.

Also, I cross into the States at Pembina ND. From that point (I29 to Fargo then I94 all the way to exit 40 in Indiana. 948 miles) there is not 1 stop sign or light. So I really don't do much stop and go driving which makes a big difference. When I'm busy I put roughly 4000 miles a week on each truck.
