HPOP alternator etc. im hopin 176,000 isnt gonna hurt me but ive always heard that miles on a diesel didnt matter really.. will i be ok?

Its a diesel. It's just being broken in at 176,000, Just make sure you do a coolant flush every year and change your oil on a regual basis witha good sythetic oil. I use Rotella T6

Take care of it, address the short comings of the 6.0 and these aare much better running trucks than many give them credit for.
