Perhaps it's for the best...I'm the 4th owner and the first was supposedly a construction company.....Then again they left the bed on and put a gooseneck hitch in there so it could be a lot of highway miles.

You're acually above average a little bit. Ford wants you to take your hours and multiply by 25 to get the mileage. Any time your over you're not considered to be idling excessively

Just like they say 200 engine hours per oil change. 200hr x 25 = 5000 miles

Oh yeah, I'm going to trust Ford's recommendation on the 6.0. No offense Matt. What you are saying makes sense. 25mph x 200 hrs = 5000 miles and that is the severe duty oil change recommendation. I believe that and agree. The key words there are "severe duty". I would prefer to see the hours and mileage work out to be closer to 40 mph which would indicate more highway mileage, more normal duty. Just sayin.

So it's in the ball park. A little high on the hrs per mile but within spec. Nothing "crazy" is what unwanted to hear, lol. Thanks for the help.

Yeah that is the severe duty recommendation. I like to go by that maintenance practice regardless. I agree it is always nice to see more miles than hours because idle time has never been good for the longevity of a diesel engine.....but no, believe me that is not excessive. I've seen hours meters maxed out at all 9s on trucks running less than 100k miles.
