I think that's about as likely as getting 20mpg pulling a 11k trailer.

I believe there was one before him that broke a million miles a few years ago, unless this was him. Ford tryed to buy it from him for what the sticker price was or something so they could stick it in a museum. lol

I know there is that e series 5.4 gasser that has over 1,000,000 on it

And there is a guy at my dads work that hauls cars to dealerships that is damn close to 1,000,000 and ford tried giving him a brand new 6.4 one for his truck. He said no of course
