Hey guys..as you can see im new to the site so thanks for everyones help..First question I have is my 03 f-250 has about 93,000 miles on it. It was never used for mud bogging, or pulling a trailer. It does have an 8'' lift, with 38'' tires on it..so heres the question, ive been told that the transmission will go out in around 30-50,000 miles from now what can i do (other than monitoring gauges, and keeping fluid topped off) to make this one last as long as possible? Oh, and its never been chipped so that helps i guess.
I am wondering cause I am 22 yrs old with a full time job and 2 part time jobs. "Mommy and Daddy" aren't paying for this stuff plus having my own apartment, moneys tight as with a lot of people so I am somebody who really drives this truck carefully and to make it last as long as possible since I am the one paying for all funds which is how it should be. I also am the type that when it does bite the bullet, I want the BEST rebuild possible to last me of course, as long as possible...blah blah blah..i know you all have heard it thousand times...I appreciate the help!
Great! I appreciate the advice. I have always had gas motors and while the principal is still the same, I am finding out how completely customizable these diesels really are and how many options there are...only problem is its addicting as hell (and expensive). Thanks a lot!
