I'd say you have more than half the life left. The family farm truck(99 v-10) has 204,000 on it and never let the engine warm up just take off in the winter with some heavy loads on the hitch and it hasnt had a engine repair yet other than a set of plugs. And my personal 04 has 92,000 and runs like a champ. I'm sure you will find a lot of people with 300K+ miles out there somewhere they may not have the time to post on fte but i know these engines and take on real beating!!!!!! we ran the farm truck on more than a few oil changes in the 20,000 mile intervals due to lack of communication and such. sometimes you just feel sorry for it but it still keeps going!!!!

I've only got 86k but I remember seeing a few technicians on here saying they have worked on V10's with over 400k on them.

150k. Not too many issues besides busted studs and a few blown plugs thanks to the local "ma and pop" service station.

I have less than 5,000 miles, but it's nice to hear the mileage many of you have and the others that I have heard in the past

I believe I am getting ready to break over 5500 miles. I, too, am glad to hear the success stories so far. Wiingnut....I do believe my truck developed a new attitude somewhere between 5000 and 5100 miles. Maybe there's some truth to what I heard about the new V10's taking some time to wake up.
