Ya, only thing I have ever changed is a fuel pump at 180,000 and water pump at 250,000
Keep the fluids changed and she still runs like a champ.

great to hear! i know these 5.3's are great motors my dads had his since 140 with the dreaded piston slap..almost sounds closer to a knock..but the thing don't miss a beat and he drives it every day with almost 250 on it now, his only major replacement has been a fuel pump as of now!
