Is 230,000 miles alot for a 6.0?

I just hit 230k but my engine still purs like a kitten, and hauls a** like a lion lol. Doesnt leak or nothing, no problems. How common is this for a 6 liter?

8 Is the magic number when it comes to trucks.. 8 lugs, 8 foot bed, 8 cylinders

It's up there but it's a disel so it sould keep kicking for a while longer. I'm running with 174,000 same looking truck as your but mine is a early 04 long bed crew cab FX4 Lariat. I love it. Just got my AFE Stage II intake and my 5" MBRP no cat, no muffler exhaust. Gonna put them in some time this week.

Nice. Mines an early 04 as well (6/03). Do you think its worth spending around 450 bucks for a sct with a custom tune? Or do you think its too late? Im still in high school and i already bought the truck with 224,000 on it, with all my money i had saved lol (and i dont regret it one bit). Im considering either lifting it with used bigger tires, changing the front end, or sct tuning. But im not sure what to do with my money...

Save it for college....lol I use bully dog. A lot of people dont like it becouse they say it does damage but I have been doing well for a while now. Bottom line though you cant go wrong with SCT and a custome tune I only have my truck leveled out and havent done wheels and tires yet. they are coming in Jan.
