The only things original on my truck are the body panels, paint, and chassis though it is galvanized...

Oh, and axle casing(s).

Talking Chris, no leaks means that you are NOT driving a LR

It ain't gonna happen:

172k-ish on my '97 with original main drive train and still leak-free and runs like a champ! (Most of which was put on it by several of you dudes.

180K on my 1994 D90. Original owner. Still has the original steel shim head gaskets and LT77. The front axle has only had one swivel seal replaced, everything else is original (except consumable brake parts).

Original owner must have something to do it with it. That is hard to believe.

Almost at 150K. And it is no where leak free! Or regular rust prevention in the engine bay.
