Higher mileage 6.0's (100k +)

I'm getting close to cresting that 100k mark. Right now I'm at 91,xxx. I take really good care of my truck and have done all the preventative maintenance, studs, EGR delete, oil cooler rebuild, HPOP fitting replacement, consistent with fluid changes, ect.

My Premium care extended warranty goes out at 103k which I plan on adding the next warranty I can after that. I just get nervous when I start getting into those higher miles. What do I need to look at soon? I plan on changing both diff fluids and trans case fluid next week.

When do I really need to start worrying about the engine and trans as far as mileage go?

Thanks in advance,

We have a truck that does hot shot work for us at my job. It is a 2004 F250 with the 6.0 and automatic trans. It is approaching 300,000 miles and runs and drives as good as my 2006 6.0 with 70,000. The only issues the truck has had thus far is an egr/oil cooler replacment as well as a couple of injectors.

I think with proper maintenance these diesels can go a long long time!

I'm thinking about taking my truck off the road shortly and buy a new 5speed fiesta for a work car and keep the Superduty in the garage since it's still in great shape.

I LOVE these trucks!

as long as you have taken care of it it wil go and go for a very long time i have a 7.3 with just over 500k and a 6.0 with 175k both are strong runners and trust eather one on drive from coast to coast i have not had a warranty on eather one for a few years just take care of it and you will be happy the few problems you may have will be cheaper then keeping a warenty on it all the time

I'd love to hear stories of high mileage 6.0 motors, and their service history. For what I paid for this truck I need to drive it for at least the next 10 years!!
