New member. (high mileage)

Hi, my name is shawn. Im coming from another forum wher i am treated very badly, so im giving up. I am a very high mileage driver, I have over 40,000 miles on my ecodiesel, and ive done many mods to make my truck last longer. My truck must last 600,000 miles.
Please dont take me the wrong way. Im not here to force people to do what i do. I am also not here to trash on the ram truck, Im here to contribute what ive done to fix problems ive encountered and share them.
I have made a ton of very long videos on how to save you money, and make your truck last longer. Its your truck and your choice what you take away from my videos.
If you dont want me here, just ask
Thanks shawn.

Welcome to the forum bud. I've found this forum quite friendly so I wouldn't worry too much. Why do you say it "must" last 600,000 miles? Is there a specific reason or do you just want to make it last a while?

Post some pictures up of your truck.

Cheers!

For anyone who would like the facts on what Shawn has alluded to in his OP, go to ram1500diesel.com and check any of his many OPs. In addition to the language he uses in his videos you will see the deception and rude behavior that resulted in him ultimately leaving that forum. Anyone and everyone is welcome on here, but courtesy and honesty go a long way to earning the forum's respect, hopefully that message has been received.

Welcome shawn, so long as you come here and respect our opinions I have no problem respecting yours regardless of language or point being made. I've clicked through some of your videos and they really are top quality, you're a real asset to this place. Cheers!
