Having proper maintenance is key to the longevity of a light truck diesel engine. Also, excessive programing will shorten the life. But I have seen a fair number of 3/4 and 1 ton trucks with 400,000 plus miles still going strong. They will have problems with suspension, transmission, water pumps and fuel pumps, but the engine is still strong.

Does gas engines make good Bombers or does this just happen to diesel engines?

Diesels are overbuilt so much stronger that they last 2X-3X times longer than a typical gas engine. This tought ness is what alows one to double the Horse power with just a computer programer and/or very few parts.
This of course shortens the life of the engine since the same parts are
stressed to doulble the stress.

On the flip side , A moderen (03-08) 5.7 Hemi v8 can make about 350Hp stock or 370 HP with just a computer programer. You can get all sorts of parts to run the power up over 600HP.
*On note of caution*
Most everyone has read do not push one over 500HP with OUT new (stronger) connecting rods. To run the stock rods at 550HP or higher will GREATLY shorten the engines life.
