Thats REALLY low miles for a 7.3
Not even broke in yet. As far as when stuff starts going out is hard to say. Could be tomorrow or another 300,000 miles. You really should be worry free (as long as you service and maintain regurly!) till about 3 to 400,000 miles. My father in law pulled campers all over the country (except Hawaii
) and had over 500,000 original miles and only went through one transmission and 3 alternators. He sold that truck and it is STILL on the road today. My personal truck (in my sig) has 286,000 on the clock and is still running strong today (knock on wood).
