93,000 & by the sounds of it many more to come!! :-)

I have had it for 3 yrs now & got it with around 60,000 mile on it.

Regular oil changes & I've had the plugs, wires, fuel filter & fuel pump replaced.

Truck was completely stock when I got it & I'm just starting to add my touches to it.

I haul 2 full size ATV's on the deck & pull a 24' TT with a smaller ATV on the back.

113000 on my 2002. Blew out a plug at 49,000 and had the head replaced via service contract. Hoping to get another 100k out of it as I can't afford to buy anything for a while.

<!--StartFragment --> My 2002 has just over 137,000 miles. I should say that two years ago I purchased it with 127,000 miles. Yeah i know I did not drive it enough. I was stuck at the time with the now ex-girlfriend's saturn. Now I am driving my SD every day and love it.

Two recent high mileage vehicles that I saw with my own eyes - a shuttle Van at Disney world 650K runs 24/7 and only shuts off for service. I asked the driver how the heck do you get so many miles out of this thing ( Ford Van ) he said service it regularly.

The mechanic that works on my Big trucks has 700K on jis little Toyota pickup service truck, same thing he's a service guy so you know it gets great service.

I think we are all accustomed to trading in out vehicles when they hit over 100K, and that's good for the manufacturers. But now a days I think a lot of us will be driving our vehicles till the tires fall off, so there will be a lot of high mileage vehicles coming up soon.

It's great to hear Disney has so many miles. Service is important for sure. Especially in the beginning when we have so much confidence in new vehicles.

The Disney guy should add never do 75 miles an hour up hill towing 10,00 pounds for three days. Or never go over 10 miles an hour for 700,000 miles.

Well i really hope these statements are true. Im getting ready to pick up my 2nd v10. I have a 99 F250 CC that is a daily work truck with 127k on it. It tows a 7klb lawn trailer from yard to yard 5 days a week.

But im getting ready to pick up another 2000 F250 with 195k on it. Kinda scary but hopefully it will work out. I love my v10.

Hmmmm. Fordman, since you plow and salt, how well does the underside look to be holding up? Brake lines, for instance?

barebones:
brake lines are still original..believed to be stainless.. a big help!! but I do powerwash the truck very well after each storm...the body is just now showing some rust like rear wheel wells, under drivers door and supercab door, cab corner....i will get this winter out of it before i bring it to a body shop...underside looks very good but i do need to primer and paint the frame...the pressure washer flaked off the old paint
