My 2015 has 129,500 on it right now.

I've changed the front brake pads.

Oil when the truck tells me to.

Fuel filters every other oil change which is approx. 15k

It is at the dealer right now getting a new radiator.

Steering Stabilizer at 36,000 and 105,000
Batteries around 100,000
Turbo Coolant connector at 120,000
Turbo Oil connector at about 140,000

2011 early-build (scared) 119,000 miles - all stock. Bought it used at 29k miles. I do my own maintenance ...
Oil, filters every 8k or less.
Fuel filters at 15k+/-.
Air filters every 10k or so.
Brakes just after I bought it at 35k and no need for them yet.
Regen every 200 miles +/-.
Bilsteins all around and steering stabilizer
I had a DEF heater go out at about 90k and it throws a crazy code now-and-then. I clear them with my Scanguage.
Been through at least 4 batteries.
Fuel pressure sending unit at about 75k miles.
Transmission and coolant change at 100K.
Changed EGT probe 13 as a precaution at 90K and carry a spare
and coming this week - turbo coolant line change at 119k.


Love the truck - 97% highway miles, no towing to speak of. 16.3 MPG consistent. I typically run the ford fuel additive.

My 2012 f350 has 165,000 on it. I tow 10k daily to jobsites. It has a 8 1/2 ft plow and a 2 yard salter on it in the winter. It was deleted at 94k. The only other work done to it ever has been brake pads twice. Actually I forgot I noticed the rear pinion seal leaking slightly yesterday. New seal $10 from the dealer lol!
Most reliable vehicle I have ever owned period....

2011 F550 106k miles

56k miles had a longblock put in cause it dropped a glow plug. Since then, 3 turbos, HPFP, whole new braking system, radiator, transmission controller, and a **** load of sensors. Build date on it is April 2010 so one of the first ones built and it was probably built on a friday afternoon. A lemon for sure.

Both times went it was a minor leak in the right side. No issues. I just noticed that it smelt like someone was having a pancake breakfast on my driveway.

2014 with 115K total, 75K since I've owned it.

Had the radiator at 65K my cost $100. I do oil changes ever 3500 miles. Dad always said oil is cheap insurance to keep an engine.

I had to get it jumped once after I was out of country for 3 weeks but she always starts and does what I need when.

Yes. they are crappy radiators. Ive had 2 go bad, replaced under warranty.


I have 74k on my 2015. I refuse to participate in this because of superstition and there is not enough wood around for knocking on.
