I've got 245,000 on my 05. Repaired the ball joints and the alternator and that's about the only thing that has gone bad so far... Oh yeah and the rust around the wheel wells

The PO of mine replaced the engine just shy of 200k, it was still running fine but he overheated it and blew a head gasket. Rather than "fix an old motor" he dropped in a new crate motor. It's got about 40K now so I've got a long way to go.

Mine just turned over 171K a couple weeks ago. This has been the single most trouble-free vehicle I've owned or heard about in my life. So far, it's required a battery, alternator one plug blew out about 70K ago and I replaced all the plugs, boots and one coil at about 150K. That's it aside from "consumables" like brake pads and tires. By doing regular oil changes, including the trans the thing drives as well as it did when I first got it in '09. By keeping it clean (it is my daily driver) inside and out, the paint looks great, much better than my friend's '12 Dodge. I think this is a real testament to the quality of Ford's paint. The interior has held up well with the exception of the steering wheel. I plan to have it and the front seat bottoms re-covered in the coming months which will have the inside looking new again. Couldn't be happier and plan to keep it forever.

204,000 miles

f550 with 204,000 miles, but... 14,397 hours due to pto. if you averaged 40 mph for 14,000 hours that would be 560,000 miles , and the truck weights 13,800 on the scale. still runs strong. need to clean rad though fan runs too much.

Replacing a fuel pump

Why remove the tank?
My 1999 Lexus RX 300 has an access panel for the fuel pump/sending unit under the rear seat.
My 2000 excursion with 293,892 miles refused to start. I replaced the relay. Replaced the fuel filter.
No fuel flow when the line to the filter was disconnected and attempted to crank.
Inertia switch check out.

Dead fuel pump:: -arrgh

So I made my own access panel. I simply cut out the bed above the center of the tank with a cut-off disc on a 4" grinder. Make sure to cut very SHALLOW. Just behind the cross member. Easy access to the unit. No need to possibly damage any of the hoses or electrical connections especially due to their age. I then placed a fire retardent fabric under the cut-out so I could weld the cut closed. then I removed the fabric. The access panel is under the carpet. No Body Knows. Yes you can make it removable with hinges , screws etc. for future use.

KISS - keeep is simple s?????

This took approximately 45 minute to complete.

344,000 miles on my 2003 F250 SC 4x4 V10 6-speed. Still runs like a top. Motor is all original other than spark plugs and oil. Spent the first half of it's life as a tow vehicle hauling livestock, hay, farm equipment, etc. Now it's my daily driver farm truck. Still pulls fertilizer buggies, combine heads, seed trailer, and whatever else is needed. Couldn't ask for a more reliable truck.

300,000 Miles on my 01 F350 dually before it finally jumped time and destroyed a piston. Needless to say i bought another motor from an 00 excursion for 800$ and dropped her in over a weekend. Back on the road.

Lots of miles

This may not be the most miles, but my 1999 F350, 6.8L, DRW, extended cab has 418,350 miles on the counter. Engine has never needed to be opened and is still running very well. Transmission has never needed to be opened. This truck just keeps going, and going, and going. This truck has pulled my 12,500# 5th wheel at least 80,000 miles from coast to coast and North to South.

I think this wins on straight miles. Congrats, hope mine lasts that long (2008, 141k miles).
