Congrats on the find! As has been stated many times here, follow the severe duty maintenance schedule. Oil every 3500-5000 and fuel filters every 10k. It is truly amazing at what these trucks can do.

Not to hijack the thread, but I just had my first oil change yesterday (09 F250 4600 miles) and the dealership talked/pushed me into getting the fuel filter saying that there was an "hour limit" on the filter. He said if it wasn't changed in the time frame it would void the warranty. Well needless to say I dropped the extra $200 for the dang fuel filter. This truck sets 95% of the time, thus the 4600 miles in 16 months of owning it. How can the fuel filter have a "time" limit and not be based on mileage? I feel like it just took it in the backside, and the wallet.

Now back to the regularly scheduled post, sorry for the hijack. Dang nice truck. I just saw the pics on the other thread. I'm now jealous as I really wanted the F350.

Sorry but they just took you for a loop. fuel filters need done every 10-15k miles. The hour limit is if your truck sits around and idles ALL the time, which NO ones trucks will actually hit that hour limit before they hit there mileage except for oil field trucks...

Maybe it didn't have to be done but it can't hurt anything. The inside of a filter doesn't last forever. At least you have some piece of mind.
