How long will my V10 Last?

This is my first Ford and I am in love with my dark shadow gray 03' V10 Crew. How long will this truck last if properly taken care of? I just bought it with 74,000 miles and was wondering how much I can get out of her. Is there any options for buying a crate motor or tranny when they eventually go out? I just don't ever plan on getting rid of it, it's that nice! I payed $13,900 for it so I'm already ahead of the game so it's worth it to put some money into it. I have 06' emblems and grill on it so far and the 4.5 DR lift is next.

It should go till about 250-300K before you need to start thinking about a rebuild. Now that's the long block I'm talking about. No telling how long the "hang-off" stuff is gonna last. Congrats on the great deal!

There has been a few of these discussions on this site before. I remember a few dealer techs saying that they have worked on a few with over 400k on them. So as long as you do your routine maintenance, it will last for a LONG time.

The 4L in my old 95 Aerostar went 195K miles before the head cracked. (Gee, what a great reason to replace the van with an F350 V10 ) I'm guessing that this motor has at least 300K miles in it as long as it is taken care of.
