Whats the milage on your 6.6L Lb7?

So I'm curious... I have seen a few people ask on here what kind of milage there engine has on it... so my question is... whats the milage on you 6.6L Lb7 Duramax? I mean cummins are known for getting high up there in milage like 300k.. Is it unheard of to see a duramax last that long!
Thanks guys let me know!

Just crossed 110K on a completely stock truck. No problems at all to date, just maintenance stuff. Finally had to change out the factory brakes @ 108K. These trucks just dont quit.

The DURAMAX is fully capable of some high milage on the odometer. I know there are several that have crossed 300K that are still being hammerred on hard with some healthy tunes, and quite a few still over 400K. This will give you an idea as to what they can do.

Thanks guys for all your responses I was just curious because there is a chance that my dad maybe giving me his 04 gmc for the time being until I can find the truck I really want. Its a crew cab short bed and I'm thinking it has about 200k miles on it and it has been rode hard and put away wet but nothing has every gone wrong with it... so I was just checking/ hoping that if I get it, it would continue to run strong...

my only concern would be injectors...if they havnt been replaced yet...depends on if he is still under the 7yr/200k mile warrenty...
