New 6.4 Owner

Hello, I'm a new Diesel owner. I have driven f-150 for the last 15 years. I purchased my first F-250 last week. A 2009 with 54,000 miles. As far as I can tell it is still all stock. It is my every day driver and I just purchased a 8,000 lb camper. Any suggestions to keep this truck running 1/2 a million miles and anything I should have inspected or serviced in the immediate future? Thank you.

tune and delete it (if you can). DoC/DPF delete, EGR delete, and if you are really energetic, bypass coolant filter, bypass oil filter, and bypass transmission filter. Other than that you are more than fine. Just follow all the maintenance.

Oh and welcome to the awesome world of Diesel!

Welcome! Also if no records, give it oil and fuel filter change.

Regular maintenance, regular maintenance, regular maintenance. Oh, and if I didn't mention it, regular maintenance. Enjoy!
