That means then, that 280000 Kms is 173984 Miles on the 1996 Vortec and and 220000 Kms is 136702 Miles on the Dakota.
My 1996 Yukon's 5.7L Vortec currently has 189000 Kms or 117439 Miles on it and is still running strong.

My '97 Yukon had 140,000 when I pulled the motor to do some heavy mods and the engine looked like new on the inside. As long as they are maintained, they will last a long time.
My dad has a customer with a LT1 in his limo. The motor has been well maintained for its 450,000 miles so far and is still running strong.

If you were the person that put all the mile on and you did excellent maintenance then the motor should keep on purring, but if you don't know the history, then be wary!!! The good thing is that rebuilds or "Crate" motors are relatively inexpensive for that engine!!!

That's what my 92 has in it, and it has 155,000 miles on it, and will still smoke the tires, cruise across country at 85, or tow 5000 lbs without breaking a sweat.
But......Like what ^^ they ^^ said.....It MUST be maintained very well in order to last.

With those numbers, I wouldn't be interested. Even if the engine was just rebuilt yesterday, all the other systems on the truck (transmission, wiring, brakes, suspension, rear end) are well beyond the average lifespan. You could have the proberbial 'one-hoss shay' on your hands.
One truck that I was looking a, a 1996, had 280000 km on the clock, and I was curious about how well these trucks hold up to large amounts of km like that.
