100,000 miles.

Nothing spectacular but I just rolled over 100,000 miles yesterday while pulling my 15,000 pound fiver. Today the truck pulls just like it did yesterday. It's as strong as it ever was. Only replaced one radiator and one egr on this engine. I'm on my second set of Goodyears but need another set soon. Oil replaced every 5000 miles fuel filters every 10,000 miles. Replaced air filter at 50,000 miles and again today. One windshield replaced along the way. Original manual transmission, clutch, and brakes.

Had oil sampled by Blackstone along the way. Engine always shows higher than normal wear metals, probably because it's always hooked up to the fiver, and it usually has 2-4 % fuel in the oil.

2008 F-350 Lariat, 6 speed, Oxford White/Silver

Mods- Bedlocker, SEIC, Bedliner, Front windows 20%tint, color matched door handles, no key holes, fumoto valve, T-Rexx billet vents, Rearview camera mirror added, Titan fuel tank, bed side steps.

What Goodyears do you run? I want to get better tires next year and really like the silent armors. Either that or Michelins.

Always feels good when that number shows up. Keep up the maintenance schedule, and you should see plenty more. Congrats

Pyro,

Which model/ tread type? I hear the crew cab like mine eat tires but figure if some is towing a lot with good tire performance they should be good for a heavy truck. Falken's are pretty bad 1st owner put them on and they are going next chance I get. Terrible tread for snow and be lucky to get 40k out of them.

Michelin LTX AT/2s here going on 35K and still have 3/4 to maybe a 1/2 tread life left. I don't think you can do wrong with them, unless you want to offroad it daily. My LTX AT/2 have seen more mud than I would expect them to handle and they did alright for a non-agressive all Teriann.

Those are the one's. Good in snow and ice. A always run the max air, 80lbs. I think that might be the key.

I have been running the Goodyear Wrangler AT/S which came on the truck. They have held up pretty well when towin yet still have food traction in snow and rain. I will replace this set with the same ones sometime before he snow starts flying.

Dang, I know I won't get 100k out of my clutch. Shoot, I hope to not get near 100k for a looong time. Just hit 50k on my '94 Bronco, and only have 60k on my '02. Don't like how I have 37k already on my '08.
