Charles Skinner Posted March 16, 2016 Report Share Posted March 16, 2016 I have long thought about the fact that most airlines keep their planes for many, many years, by just remodeling them many times. That led me to the following: My 2005 Dodge/Cummins now has about 115,000 miles and seems to have many more still left in it. Have you ever known of someone who ---- at about 250,000 miles, or something like that ---- just replaced the engine and all of the other devices under the hood with a high quality rebuild Cummins engine, and a high quality rebuilt transmission, and any other part that needed to be replaced and continued to drive it just as if it was a brand new truck?
