132,000 miles, 13 years old as well (I've only had it for 1.5 years and about 20,000 miles) and seems to run good. Agree w/ above, change my oil every 3,000 miles (about 3 months), Castrol GTX dino 10W30 and the hated Fram PH-16.

I personally owned a 1987 carbureted 3.9 Dakota and it had 250,000 on it and still ran great, and I have seen an 88 or 89 that had 317,000 and also still ran good! My dad has a 94 with a 3.9 that has 203,000 on it and runs perfect, and last, I have another 89 that has 202,000 on it and also runs really good! I would drive a 3.9 to the moon if it was possible.

I have a 1998 Dakota Sport 3.9 with 177,000 on it. I bought it when it had 125,000. I don't know what the guy before me has done as far as preventative maintenance, so I have tackled all the fluid changes myself. Runs strong! Oh yeah, I changed the ball joints out @ about 140,000 miles. Yeah, the stock ones held out at least until 125,000! I heard they go out way sooner. Engine and automatic tranny are strong @ 177K.

Nearly 30 years old, 242K miles, runs like new on
original drivetrain.
Frame has rotted, welded 3x, one more spot will
finish it off. But otherwise a GREAT truck.

I just put new injectors into my 3.9 which hasn’t been started since
2015. Cranked right up and ran like a top.

I have a 2000 Dodge Dakota Sport. My mother bought it brand
new. She gave it to me 2 years ago. It has OVER 318,000 miles on
it and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it!!!! Does not burn
oil or use oil. My mother kept maintenance up on it and since she
gave it to me, I continue to do the same!!!! This is the first Dodge I
have ever owned. I’m 57 yrs old!!!! I have always been a Chevy girl
but never had one that lasted this long!!!!!
