Truck in great condition. Always babied and over maintained. Fresh clay bar job, polish, and waxed. Oil changed at 190k. This truck would make a perfect highway hauler (car, RV, boat, or horse trailer hauler). Very strong truck.
Program Towing tune (better mileage and smoother shifts)
Donaldson 6637 air filter modification (improved mpg, power)
Open exhaust (more mpg, improved turbo sound)

187k - New water pump with filter system from DieselSite (just an upgrade/preventative maintenance) Also installed new belt and idler pulleys. Refilled entire cooling system with Evans waterless coolant. New thermostat.
Smoke cab light lenses and white LED bulbs.

Mag Hitech finned differential cover
Comes with brand new TurboMaster Wastegate Control - never installed.

I purchased the truck in 2010 at 150k in North Carolina.
Always used DieselKleen every fuel fill-up.
Oil changed every 3k miles using 15w40 Rotella Synthetic and Motorcraft filter
Differential fluid is Redline and changed at 185k.
Transmission filter and fluid changed at 175k
Never had a 5th wheel hitch installed.
Truck was in North Carolina and Florida. No rust!
Majority of mileage between 150k and now was during 100 mile round trip commutes. I would use it for my commute every once in a while to keep it moving.
