Just hit 300k on 08 f250

So I'm new to the forum and just kinda checking in seeing what all I'm missing and what needs to be done.

My 2008 f250 cc fx4 just rolled 300k and I was wondering how many of you are there yet and what I'm looking at in terms of maintenance and replacing.

I've already done egr cat and dpf delete I think an alternator a few years back and brakes tires one tie rod and oil changes.

Are there any things I should be doing as preventive maintenance at this mileage.
lx5spd and '086.4LDiEsEl' like this.

About time someone post something positive. Haha most first posters say hey just blew my engine.
Are you the original owner? Is the engine the original?

Sounds like you know what to do for maintenance. Just keep on on those oil and fuel filter changes. You've never had hpfp issues? That's good news to hear people getting up there in miles with just normal wear and tear issues

How often are you changing fuel and oil filters? This post is very motivating! My trucks at 74k miles and would love to see 200k let alone 300k!

I like these kinds of posts! I'm at 99,600 and I'm trying not to drive it so I can stay under 100k as long as I can

Welcome to the board, and thanks for the good news. I love my 6.4 and I hope to report back someday the same type of milage. My truck is a 2010 and I bought it new. It has been deleted since about 20,000 miles and I now have almost 80,000 miles.
