    You must be just starting your second tank of gas, right? Good luck with her.

    We have a 03 f-150 with 33k on it zero problems, and an 05 f-250 with 37k on it zero problems, and the f-250 has plowed since day one... Both great reliable trucks!

    have a 04 250 with 112,000 on it, its a company truck no major problems, its like most things you take care of it, like normal maintenance and it will be fine we dont plow with it but we haul alot of weight pretty much daily and pull trailers

    My 99 has 102,000 on it, I bought it with 64k on it and have all the service records. The only issue I have had has been with exhaust manifold bolts and exhaust itself, other than that I love it but am looking at 2005 or newer right now!

    '02 F250SD Crew Cab 5.4 spun a main @ 141,000 - no service record to speak of when I bought it, I guess it's the chance you take buying used. rebuilt motor (got a deal at $1500) normally $3000 for a long block install was $1000. Honestly, I think I would still buy another 5.4 mine is the only one I have heard of major problems with.

    99 F250 has 157K on it and still runs like a top. It does have a slight oil leak on the right side head gasket, but doesn't go througha quart of oil in 4000 miles. Still has original exhaust, trans, transfer case. I have replaced all the components at the front axle.

    145k on mine. I had to do the head gaskets at aorund 130-135k. the front hubs and actuator for 4/wd had to be replaced. and the acuator needs to be changed again 1 1/2 years later. o ya and ya cant forget the exhaust manifold. that is a pain in a half if you can pay someone to do it. unless you like your knuckles bleeding :)
