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

My two oldest 7.3 PSD are doing okay

2001 with just over 500,000 miles. It got a new complete engine with turbo around 460,000 miles.

2001 with 480,000 on the original engine. Runs great (for now). I may sell it before it blows up. 10K for an engine is hard to swallow.

Tranys have gone out between 250/300K.

High dollar weak links are high pressure oil pumps, water pump a few times, and rear end in the 2001 went out at 100K and again around 350,000.

Just my 2 cents...
