Hey folks, I am new here and thought I might ask an obvious question.

Did the truck gods smile the day my truck was built, I mean I am reading all kinds of different posts about trannies going bad, injectors fouling out, PCM's going out, and the whole gamut of problems. Yet, in 205,000 miles the only thing that has gone wrong with my truck was a CPS at 50,000 and a rear wheel speed sensor at 90k, both fixed under warranty. see signature for mods.

Oh, BTW, this truck also spent 5 months in LA. hauling Fema campers, 2 sometimes 3 campers a day.

I know now that I have said all of the above the afore mentioned Truck gods will smite me with all their might.... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/phoney.gif

I have a buddy who has a 2001 F350, C/C 4X4, auto. He currently has 280,000 miles on it and all he has replaced is the ball joints and brakes. They abuse the hell out of that truck. The last 150,000 miles has basically been used as a hot shot truck for the company he works for (24ft trailer and 30ft gooseneck). The truck runs great, no tranny issues or weird noises (the injectors are quiet). The only performance mods he has done is ad an Edge Evo (80 HP mode), drop in oiled filter and exhaust. He has no gauges at all, even though I have told him about 50 times to get some. He just treats it like a truck, that must be the secret.
