I'm almost at 120K on mine. It is all about that routine maintenance to keep everything going.

I'm at 138k. No problems with the engine other than the recent Throttle Valve - burns maybe a 1/4qt of oil between oil changes. Torque converter lock-up clutch started slipping around 110k - ProTorque 2800 converter took care of that ;)

You all give me solace for spending so much on a car. I almost feel like I should've kept my '13 R/T Daytona sometimes... it was a nice car, and I had it halfway paid off in a year. Got killed on my trade though, and I'm paying about $712 a month for my SRT for just the note. As long as it lasts I suppose!

How's the body/paint holding up?

The body and paint on mine are still in great shape with the exception of the front fascia and rear spoiler where the clear coat has peeled. It was a factory defect on the '06 cars that they fixed on later years.

Those ABS/urethane parts were painted separately from the steel body and used an improper process for the clear that didn't bond well to the base coat. Over time, pin holes in the clear from normal wear allowed water in and caused the clear to bubble and lift.

No worries for me though since 10 years of normal road sandblasting would have made me want to repaint the front fascia anyway. Doing the rear spoiler with it is a minor additional cost.

Besides, I'm replacing the front fascia and rear spoiler in a few months anyway with something completely different...

Other than needing to get the paint redone on the spoiler as the clearcoat is coming up my paint is still in really good condition. I need to get my passenger quarter panel replaced/looked at. Somehow it managed to warp it self. I'll post pictures later

Paint and body are in great shape on mine. The front fascia has some normal 138k mile rock chips, but none of the paint is faded or pealing. She does need a rub out and wax this spring though.

Guy in my local car group has an 06 (or 07?) SRT with like 105K miles on it. Beats the living crap out of it so the general consensus among us is that he won't get past 150K, if that.

^^ Keep us posted. The SRT track program had cars with a lot of track only miles without any issues. When you say beat on it, what does that involve?

Just broke 96,000 on my 06 SRT this weekend.
Still runs great.
Body and paint, well hard to say; she had a "facelift" and make over in the fall of 2014. Acid rain burns in the clear and hail dings from previous owner neglect.
