How many miles do you guys put on your trucks?

Just curius to see how many miles everyone drives. Reason is because I seem to drive TONS and TONS. I bought the Yukon back in January with 91,000Kms (56,000 miles) and now only 6 months later I am up to 114,000Kms or 71,500miles on it. If you do the math you find out that thats 15,500!!!!

Last Friday I put on a set of brand new BFG MT's and already 7 days later I have 1,000 miles on them!!!!! and the driving isn't going to stop anytime soon. I am going to all these truck pulls on the weekend now and they are at the least 60 miles away with the furthest being 400Miles.

Damn, I drive to much!!!!

Re: How many miles do you guys put on your trucks?

I got mine in fall of '99 with 80K on it. Now it has 128k. In almost two years i put on 48k so far.
Do people say that 12k a year is the average?? Personally I have never been able to drive so litte, and I did try.

Will work for mods

I'd say about 20,000 miles a month, a little less in the winter. I waiting to hit the 200,000 mile mark.

My truck ain't leaking oil it's marking it's territory!

Re: How many miles do you guys put on your trucks?

I bought my truck with 180k and after 2.5 years its got 215k, so I guess that figures out to about 14k a year, not too bad I guess
