82K....none at all. Normal oil, filter, brake and fluid changes, replaced front rotors with PowerSlots and changed calipers when I did (just because). Not even a CPS change yet.

Re: Whats your mileage on your 7.3 ? and with what repairs???

62k miles, and mpg is just under 16.

Repairs include the following that were done under waranty.

* Throwout bearing
* O ring on HP line
* Injector drive module & PCM (was replaced when in the shop for the HP o-ring)
* CPS
* Rattle at drivers side defrost vent

Non warranty repairs include:

* Vehicle Security Module replaced.
* Passenger side axle seal on front diff...this one kind of made me mad...
* POS LSD replaced with an Eaton Posi...I am not sure I would consider this a "problem" as most people seem to have a poor experience with the factory LSD, and I was looking for an excuse to buy something anyway...as long as I was having the front axle worked on (see above issue).
* A couple months back, I noticed that my "clutch pedal position switch" was bad, and replaced it myself.

Other than that, I have had no problems. Even now, the truck seems "tight", and I do not have any squeaks and rattles. Overall, I am very pleased with this vehicle!!

2002 F250 XLT 4WD SC SB with 6 Speed and Manual Shift Transfer Case. Pillar pod-o-gauges, Warn Premium Hubs, AIS, Fumoto, Edge 3” leveling kit on the front (with adjustable track bar), 4” blocks on the rear, Eaton Posi, Bilstein 5100s and 285 X 75 X 16 BFG MTs all around. Oil pan coated with POR-15. Fleetrite ELC and Dieselsite coolant filter (plus new water pump). New O-Rings on the injectors.

Re: Whats your mileage on your 7.3 ? and with what repairs???

That reminds me. Don't wait until you have over 100,000 on your odometer before you change your shocks. When your truck never gives you problems and the shocks wear out gradually over time you tend to overlook them. After I changed my shocks the first time I spent the next three weeks kicking myself for not doing it sooner.

Re: Whats your mileage on your 7.3 ? and with what repairs???

80K

Passenger side seat belt buckle (warranty recall),
ball joints,
front rotors,
all brake pads,
caliper pins greased,
steering drag link (ball stud went bad),
sway bar link (passenger side),
Steeltexes (at 60K,with Revos... should have gotten 10K more, ball joints took the fronts out),
assorted bulbs,
plus the usual oil/filters/etc..

I have Bilsteins in the shipping box (for a year!) but not enough time to install them. The steering stabilizer is toast too from the extent of steering wheel movement going through pot holes (lots and lots of potholes, which is what wore out some of the parts above).
