    180,000 on my '86. Engine has 15,000-16,000, not sure about the tranny or transfer case-probably 180,000. Axles should be considerably less, since neither are stock.

    well, I'm not sure on some of my vehciles, as I didn't own them for the entirety that they're on the road, and one of them came with a broken speedo... but here goes:

    1977 C20 pickup: 180,000 ( I bought it with 120, put 60 K on it in the next 2 years)
    1977 C20 suburban: 280,000 truck, 40,000 engine
    1973 K20 Suburban: unknown... speedo says 35,000, but I couldn't tell you if thats 135, or 235, or if its the factory engine or not...
    1973 C10 suburban: unknown... parts truck, and I never checked the speedo. the previous owner I believe said he put 120K on it since he got it in 1980, so prolly around 200,000 miles +/-

    The odometer reads 146K, but it is actually closer to 156K because of the larger tires on it. Nothing though except the Tcase and front axle are factory. The motor, tranny, and rear axle have been rebuilt. The front axle is in for a rebuild this summer with 4.56 gears with an Auburn Posi, and the rear is going to be replaced with a 14bff with 4.56 gears with welded spider gears, or a Detroit if I can afford it. So then the only thing with 146,000 actual miles on it will be the Tcase.

    My daily driver is a 1991 Extended cab stepside Chevy with 240,000 miles on the original engine. It still runs good, doesn't burn or leak oil, and has good compression. I'll probably rebuild it soon, just to be safe since I drive it everyday. It's the black truck in my pics.

    I've got 173,000 on the blazer, 25k on the bottom end of the motor and about 4 miles on the new heads before something broke (valve spring I think) I'd love to putting more miles on it if I could just get it running /forums/images/icons/mad.gif
    I've got 219,000 on my '75 vega that's totally stock. The motor was rebuilt by the origional owner at about 25k miles but that's about it. Best $300 car I've ever had. I've had it for 4 years and has not left me stranded yet.

    1978 K10 with 204,000
    1980 K20 with 108,000

    Both have new motors and trannys, but I can't say too many vehicle of that vintage and/or mileage are still on the road up here in the Northeast (Snow, Salt, and Sandbelts). I'm not saying there isn't any, but few and far between as daily drivers.

    It's true what they say about Chevy's (sorry GMC guys) "The longest lasting trucks on the road". GMC was supposedly (even though I don't believe it) a stronger truck, but most I've seen have ended life earlier under lighter duty than most Chevy counterparts. Funny isn't it for two vehicles that were supposed to be identical except badging /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif. Flame away!
