I think he was talking about how many miles were ON the truck.

200,000 is high mileage.

The new powerstokes should easily go that, the older IDI tended to start hard after 150,000 in cold weather.

They're great engines, but don't have the life expectancy of a 5.9L Cummins.

With all used INTL engines, make sure that the coolant has been treated all of the engines life. If not pin holes will form between the cylinder and water jacket at #8 cyl. Its a condition called cavitation.

I have 2 service trucks in the 300's and still going strong.
1 is a 7.3 - 1 is a 6.9. My personal truck is a 95 crew cab 4x4
power stroke, and it has 220k miles on it and seems to run better
everyday.
check out ford-diesel.com for info on ford diesels
