Sounds like a keeper.
First off the tranny is one of those things, some people never have a problem some do, just drive it do sceduled maint. if it goes out put a suncoast in
Oil is a no brainer Rotella T,15w40, but then again thats up to you.
Change it as often as you like , and spend as much as you want on oil, I use above mentioned and put alot of miles on my trucks, as far as how much about 15 Quarts
also change the fuel filter on top the motor every 15k

If you want a "true" opinion on your new rig then let me drive it for a week or so and I'll get back to you on it... Sounds like a nice rig... where's those pics? :whistle:

Thats tough given the lift and oversize tires, Its 235 flywheel from factory,
if your getting that to the ground with mods your doing well.

:nono: Service trans every 20k miles. IF 7.3's have a weak link it's the trans and they are expensive to fix. I've had 1st hand experience with mine 4x's in 85k miles and I serviced mine like clock work and never really pulled anything at the time. The last time I got fed up and had it BUILT . No more problems I have 120k now and it's still going strong.
