I have not had any issues from mine other than regular wear and tear and maintenance.

101K on my 2004...new to me last year.

I added 4" Zone lift, wheels, tires, stereo, back up cam, etc.

Headers and new gears coming this fall.

Reliable thus far, rides straight as an arrow at 80 mph.

Smile every time I fire it up.

16 years now. 250,000 + miles. The only work on the V10 is fluid changes and spark plugs. The only work to the engine, fuel system and cooling system has been plugs. One blown plug repaired with a timesert and Fuel Pump. That is it no alternator, AC compressor, water pump. Oh one new belt just because.

It is my daily driver and I pull a 30ft travel trailer with it.

BEST TRUCK I EVER HAD.

F-250 Triton V10 400,000mi

How reliable is the V10? Can it handle a lot of miles? Most I am seeing now are at or near 100k.
I have had no issues with my F-250, sitting at 439,000 miles regarding maintenence and tune-ups as needed no upgrades, all original

I have a F-450, with the V-10, and automatic. It is in my daily driven tow truck. I have a Century 412 tow unit on it. I have towed veeeerrrry heavy loads. I.E. Extremely lifted, oversized tires, 4 door, long bed chevy/dodge pick ups. Other than making sure the fluids are topped off on a regular basis, and changing oil and transmission fluids regularly, (even though it may not need it), and keeping up on basic maintenance, I have had no issues with the truck, other than a bad A/C clutch and bearing. Truck is an 01, with 165,xxx miles. Previous truck was a 2000, same drivetrain, never had an issue with it either.

We have an '03 F-250 with about 47K miles. Had to have the rear end rebuilt, but no problems with the engine (as to be expected apparently). It has been maintained according to factory recommendations. From what I see here it looks like I can expect to be using it for quite some time. BTW I love driving it - cruises @ 80 mph and surges forward when I step on it. No buyer's remorse here.
