The only time I have ever heard of a dodge, GMC, Chev, Ford diesel engine not making 350-400,000 miles is always because they was not taken care of properly. Having spent 22 years in the transportation industry with real Hot Shot drivers who put 100-150,000 miles a year cross country on Dodge 1 tons, Chev & GMC 3500's, Ford F350, 450, 550's, even all the farmers/horse/cattle owners that I know all put around 400,000 on their vehicles before they start having problems. So your statement well like I said it makes me laugh, thanks for the chuckle.

I'm not sure who you are talking about since I didn't say any of those things.

Anecdotes over industry figures?

The Cummins Turbo Diesel has the highest durability in this class of pickups, with an average life-to-overhaul of 350,000 miles - more than 100,000 miles higher than any competitive engine.

Cummins Every Time - In The News - U.S. Press Releases - Press Release

Similar quotes about MTBO (mean time between overhaul) can be found in other Cummins literature. If it were wrong, GM and Ford would be howling.

It isn't just maintenance practice, some designs are simply better than others.
