2012 SV here @ 116k miles. This is wifey's daily driver. I got me a 2021 Ram 1500 Laramie last year for myself.

No major mechanical problems so far. I keep up with the oil changes every 7.5k miles.

Major maintenance last month:
- New spark plugs
- Serpentine belt
- Differential fluid front/back
- Transfer case fluid (Did tranny fluid last year)
- New tires

I attempted to replace brakes last weekend. Couldn't get the passenger caliper off. After 3 hours, I gave up and put everything back. I'll either get my friend to help me out, or bring it to a shop later on.

Might as well update too.
At 177,000 miles on my 4x4 V8 now.
Nothing major ever broke while I owned it but previous owner broke rear springs, and blew the rear shocks..

We should really change this to include high engine hours (how to get that information of the computer?).

Pretty sure some folks drive in the city and the mileage could appear meek compared to some of the nomads here :)

That being said - it's impressive to see what mileage folks put on these R51s over the years.
