    Welcome to the site, just keep doing the regular maintenance on it and treat her well and you should have no issues. How long have you had the truck?

    Welcome aboard! Chevy trucks are designed to run a long time with little maintenance. I am getting close to 252K on my 98 and would not hesitate to drive it across the country. With proper maintenance and responsible driving, you should get 300K if you want to keep it that long.

    Welcome aboard. I have just a little over 100k on my SS and I have driven it across country about 6 times. Making trips from Seattle to Nashville. Only problem I have had is the water pump gasket needed replaced so I just upgraded water pump :glasses:

    Just like everyone else has said proper maint and good driving it will last you for a long time
