273,242 so far. Bought it new. Original 4R100 lasted until 203,000, put in a 4R100HD, will see how long it lasts. Normal replacements of water pumps every 100k or so, alternators, (put in a Leece-Neville this time, will see if it does better than the auto parts stores rebuilt), DENSO starter (same deal, auto parts stores starters last 6 months). Change the Delvac 1300 every 5k.
Biggest fear is when the injectors or glow plugs need work, impossible to do in a van w/o motor removal or body removal so as to get to the motor.

Nope, the HD shifts perfect, I change the oil in it every 25k miles. (Mobil1 synthetic ATF) Installed a spin-on filter between the cooler out and transmission input.

4R100inputfilter

also put the biggest oil cooler I could find on the HD (it's really hot here 10 months of the year)

Early 99 (10/98), F-350, 2WD, CC, Dually, LB, Access Cover, ZF 6 w/South Bend 1944-60KHD clutch, 20K Reese Hitch, Ford AIS, Auto Meter Gauges, MagnFlow 3.5 DP w/4inch exhaust, Banks Big Head Wastegate Actuator, MagHytec on Dana 80, Timbrens, DP F6 (No Start, 1200 rpm, 1200 rpm/w EBV, Decel, 40T, 60T, 80T, 60E, & 80E) , 36 foot triple slide 5th wheel (15K), 403K

Cool

Just about to roll 374K. Original engine with common repairs (water pump, radiator, HPOP, boots) and original tranny. It's my daily drive as well as pulling horse trailers and RV.
Love my truck!

Well, BTS did my tranny back in 2003 with 78K on the clock..
It lasted 9 years and 140K...Doing a lot of towing of my 10K# camper...
The thrust washers finally wore out and the tranny crapped out...
I went with a Ford Reman. tranny with a 3yr, 100K mi warranty...
The Reman. worked well until I sold the truck this last fall
Put 60K on the Reman.
Brian said he stand behind his tranny work BUT, I had to wait 3 months for him to get to it,
and I had to pay shipping both ways [$750/total] plus R & R costs...
Estimated total $12-$1500..
Bottom line I went with the Reman. for out the door price of $3000

I'm not sure what took it out. It just starting slipping one day under normal driving. Lasted 86,000 miles. I sent it back to Brian and had to pay for a new convertor and a new solenoid...with shipping probably about $1250 altogether, if I remember correctly. I got it back relatively fast which I was grateful for but rather surprise that I had to pay for parts on what I thought was a lifetime warranty. Never towed with it and never with real heavy loads. Also had the large Ford 6.0 cooler on it when I first put it in. Kind of disappointing. He said that it looked like I had run some sort of additive in it and that had damaged it. I never did though and only used Schaeffers All-Trans according to his recommendations and changed it out every 30,000 miles. I've got 67,000 on the 2nd one so far without any problems.
