55,000 miles and going strong!

my review is still the same as at 30,000 miles. Truck is rocking through a Montana winter in style. Feel free to ask specific questions.

One question I have is, how are the Z71 seats wearing? Any cracks in the fake leather? Any torn stitching?

Very nice!
55,000 miles in a year. Good to see someone else out there running these into the ground.
I'm typically at 40,000/year, but have only been driving for work now for 3 full weeks. So I'm just passing 3000miles. Baby steps!

Our general rule at work is that the trucks should last 8-10 years. So when I'm in the 300,000 to 350,000 mile range, I sure hope it's still running like a champ.
With a few more rattles and dents, no doubt.

Im a BIG guy, the seats are holding their own, no wear (other than being smashed a bit) the stitching is fine

the only recent issues Ive found is that the stupid wheel liners build up massive amounts of ice. The material doesnt allow the ice to fall away with ease.

That's terrific news.

Approximately how many miles were on your truck when you changed the tires?

Awesome!! Just drove the family from the east coast to yellowstone and camped in Montana, Beautiful state! I hope my '15 performs like yours. So far a year and a half with zero issues, love this truck. Only 6000 miles though, I live 3 miles from work....
