I'm keeping mine. I've got 264K on her now and she's burning zero oil. When she hits 500K If she needs I'll have the motor and the tranny rebuilt but, only if she needs it. At the rate she is going I might get a million miles out of herbe for she get a rebuild. However, I'm sure the tranny will have to be rebuilt long before the motor.

Well I bought mine new in 97, and love it I did not even start modifying till 100,000 miles. I love the way it runs and the fact I can do all my own work on it and enjoy maintaining and upgrading her
Pulls my trailer like a champ, Just ask her what you want and away she goes!
All my trucks have been F-250’s and this one is the best!
Cant see any reason to spend 50-60,000 on a new truck that when you open the hood you can’t even see the engine do to al the crap on top, let alone work on.

So at 266,000 I’ll keep the old gal!!!

I've had electronic rustproofing since day one in 1996 and the body is mint, even in salty Rochester NY. at the rate I drive (5k per yr), I'll be run into the ground long before the truck.. This summer, the strokers gettin all the TLC it never got, I've always run krap oil and did minimal maint. still runs like a bear!! have only done, glow plugs once, a water pump and a drag link/tie rods,etc. oh and a set of tires, 2 sets of batteries. I guess not much compares to the OBS..:ford:
