Buying an high mileage 6.7, concerns?

So I'm in the market for a used 2011 f250, should I be concerned in buying one with 100,000 plus miles on it? I'm no stranger to the diesel world but popping the hood on a 6.7 is like staring at a raging bull, I realize that the warranty will be expired but should that turn me away from buying the truck? How reliable and long lasting are these trucks? I'm a cummins fanatic but I can't stand a dodge I've fought every single non motor related issue over three trucks and with this last one I'm fed up and I test drove some new fords and love the power and the amazing quality of truck and wouldn't do more than a tuner and some deletes with a cai and a little extra fuel filtration. I've heard the horror stories out there but I know there are lemons out there. Honestly I think that a higher mileage 6.7 would have all the bugs worked out of it so to speak or would it be just beginning to develop issues? I'd like to hear from the guys who have put miles on their trucks and used them as designed too. Thank you all for your time, I'm new to the power stroke world but its time for a new flavor around the farm.

I would recommend that you get one that is in stock form if you are looking for something over 100K. If buying from a dealership, buy an extended warranty if you plan to leave it stock. Bought my 2011 F250 used and got an additional 100K mile extended warranty for around 3K. Only issue I have had was a sensor and the warranty covered it with no issues. There are warranty companies that you can get a warranty up to 200K miles. These trucks are great and I only miss my '08 because of the DRW.

Take a look at this video. Not saying they could all be like this, but it opens your eyes. Buyer beware.

Good info right there, the guy has a very successful shop so I highly doubt that he is a moron. The chances of that exact scenario happening are very slim but still possible. What I am more concerned about is the longevity of these engines(6.0 don't have the best track records i don't care if this is a powerstroke forum lets all be real here), I refuse to buy a truck that has been modified past the looks department. I would like to hear from some guys who have 150,000+ miles on their trucks and have owned them from day one. How often did it go back to the dealer? How many times has it left you sitting on the side of the road if at all? Did the dealer cover everything? Does it do cartwheels? Are these truck worth $30,000+ dollars after the odometer crosses over 100,000? Help me out here IM TIRED OF CUMMINS!

I've also tried my hand at the extended warranty and it left a sour taste in my mouth, I had a hole wear in a 2008 durramaxes AC condenser and the warranty was voided because it had a NAPA air filter instead of a GM........ like really?!?

I have a 2011 F250 with 118k miles and a 2011 F350 with 65k miles both 4x4 ccsb and neither has ever had a thing done to them other than routine maintenance. They're both stock and tow anywhere from 10-15000 lbs almost daily. I'm sold on these rigs. I also switched over from the Rams just like you.

If you have the ability to pull a cab, break down an engine and tear a block apart like he can, then you can raise yourself up to the level of moron.
