well as far as the stock feature, that really isn't a problem. My father-in-law has a 08 f450 with almost 300k on it and hasn't had one problem with his motor and he drives Hot-shot delivery and puts highway miles and local driving as well. changes his oil if he does long trips right after he gets back. so, the stock ordeal has nothing to do with it.
but if your dad wasn't keeping up on the oil changes every 5k and driving it like a devil on wheels, then your truck will fail. must be a operator malfunction too me, but who knows, maybe just a bad batch of motors.
