like anything else, it depends on how it was taken care of and what it was used for. knowing the maint. history would be a bonus, and not just the salesman saying it was drivin by an old lady to church on sundays...

Howdy,
I am the second owner of my 95. I bought it in 99 and it was on its second tranny, but the previous owner pulled a 40' car trailer which probably nuked the first transmission. When I bought the truck it had 120K on it. It now has 312K so almost 200K from me alone on the second transmission. I do some towing (horse trailer, misc construction equip,etc.....) and it has held up so far, but I do plan on replacing it with a beefier one soon while I have the money and before my wife startsusing it as a daily driver.

re (95 F250)

I'm the second owner of my truck. It had 92,000 on it when I bought it.
The previous owner pulled a 14,000 lb fifth wheel with it. He did take good care of it with regular maintence. As far as I know it has never had a wrench to the transmission. The fluid has no indication of of burning or excessive heat. It was one of my concerns when I bought it, but I have had no problems what so ever. I talked to a guy at a transmission shop ahd he
said he would starve to death if he depended on the E40D Transmission to make his living. I really feel good about it now. I think abuse and lack of maintence is the major killer of that transmission. I have had the truck for over 3 years and like I said never a shudder just clean solid shifts. At this time my brother is rebuilding the E40D out of his Lightning (400 hp with vortec supercharger) Because of a converter problem. but the internals of transmission are still rock solid.
