Dumb Luck...400K miles

I thought you guys would get a kick out of this. I have a friend with a 2002 F250 crew cab, and he just text-ed me a pic of his odometer turning 400,000.00 miles. To date he has no mods, stock everything and he just replaced the serpentine belt last week(which he had to pay to have done...zero mechanical ability) he has put 2 starters and 3 alternators on it and that's it.....nothing else has worn out...no HUBs- ujoints- steering parts....nothing....This is the definition of Dumb Luck!!

400,000 and all he's had too fix is a belt, and some alternators

No balls joint's, tranny, or injerctors???

That's not dumb luck, it's a miracle IMHO

Or quite possibly a lack of maintenance.

I would love to see under the front of his truck!
