105k. I have replaced a lot of things but the only things I have replaced because it was broken are

rear pinion seal @ 20k
1st alt @ 25k
gas pedal @ 60k
2nd alt @ 75k
1 lock actuator @ 77k

I changed the CPS at the same time as the gas pedal because the symptoms are similar and I need to rule out one to know its the other. Also CPS is cheap and I now have spare.

172,658 on a 2000 F250SD 7.3L 4x4

According to service records and previous owner when I purchased it, upgraded Exhaust, Intake, and Turbo. Only problems has been batteries, one alternator, and the bloody compressor clutch not engaging.

Oh yeah, Apparently the Fuel Filter wasn't changed like Ford said it was. Had the original OEM unit installed (how I don't know) died in the middle of the freeway one day thing was coated in algae.

I've had some issues with door seals but they were minor had to purchase new clips. Other than that everything is a okay.

Oh and it is a 80% of the time heavy trailer puller.

****9-4-2009 Fuel Pump (Frame Mounted) went out. Limped it home, going to install new one tonight.

102,000 miles, replaced brake pads at 60,000. Runs great, all belts and hoses probably should be replaced but look good. Main drive belt looks great, no cracks or splits. Pull a 32' fifth wheel trailer quite often. Truck has been serviced as scheduled. Oil change every 3000 miles. Am going to change the rear end fluid this month.
Probably the best truck that I have ever owned and at 72 years old will be the last diesel I will own. Built Ford Tough.

The BTS is still doing great with over 400K miles. I changed the ring and pinion recently, it had just a little wear pattern, it was time. Replaced u-joints, carrier bearing, and had the shafts balanced, new front rotors, and pads, replaced alternator, front wheel bearings. That is the pretty much everything, I can remember off hand. Still strokin.

poppie, you sure ask the hard questions. What will I replace "old reliable" with, I really don't know, and there are not any good reliable choices. I still prefer the Ford truck, but they don't have a good, reliable diesel motor. I hate to say this but, the 2010 Dodge crew cab dually looks good in the pictures. I just can't see me owning a Dodge, especially with the merge with Fiat. I keep coming up with the same answer, none of the above. Hopefully, "old reliable" has many miles in it's future.

1993 - F250 - 7.3 turbo (non-power stroke)

GP relay - water pump - oil cooler reseal - clutch (previous owner) all u-joints - rear seal (seal good diff vent line clogged blew seal) - starter replace - fan clutch - ignition switch -

All told not much for such a great truck. Biggest problem is listening to the wife complain about the smell. (I just told her she was jealous).

Probably more than what you were looking for, but it seems like your doing some research about possibly buying a superduty with a 7.3L. Good choice...lol...I love this truck and I haven't been able to kill it yet (unless my mom or sister drive it and run it out of fuel >.<, lesson learned don't fall asleep on long trips!). I included the Repairs and upgrade wants to give you an idea of what you can do to older superduty's to update them and make them look newer while keeping a 7.3L!!!!!
