    I was watching random SRT-10 vids on YouTube, when I came across this very sad, badly beaten 2005 quad-cab. However, once I dried my tears, my jaw hit the floor - over 300k miles on the clock! Do you really think the 8.3L is that tough? Can it really soldier on for that long? Here's the link:

    :eek: I thought the same thing! Very odd price! However, if those are the real miles, that's freaking awesome!

    wow! and that was in 2017 too! That truck has been beat down and still ticking! Wonder what all the writing was on the tail gate that seemed to want to avoid with the video.

    6666.66 I guess is to invoke Satan as that price is "666" twice, if you like.
    Maybe for 2 Satans?,
    Antichrists?, etc;
    But I can't be certain as I'm not part of any Anti-Christian sub-cultures but 666 is the number reserved for it.

    With a video freeze-frame, this is what I saw:

    "Love your enemys mean love your Self"
    "Hate your enemy's mean Hate your self"
    "The bigest enemy is your self is your self"

    Smile is worhty.



    Pretty deep stuff.
    Pharmaceuticals may have been involved.

    Not responsible for grammatical nor spelling errors but I'm sure it all made perfect sense to someone at the time. :eek:

    300+ thousand miles. I'd love to tear it apart, take some measurements and have a look around' unless of course that engine was in a different truck and/or has been rebuilt a time or two.

    It's true history would very likely remain an eternal mystery.

    No reason these engines couldn't go for that long, and beyond.

    And it has chrome grille and chrome door handles - that’s probably the extra 666.66 he wanted for it

    Yes, I'm sure that pine "Air-Freshener" hanging on the rearview mirror has been very busy.

    The lower valance (below the grille) is not SRT-10 either.
    It looks like maybe the front of that vehicle got up close and personal with something.

    Some one got their money's worth. It took a licking and kept on ticking.
