I voted 7.3 IDI because it's low on power and doesn't have a turbo so it must not wear down at all.

I'd say the DI 7.3's regardless of body style. I've never seen a super-high mileage rig in person, but a customer of ours has a 94.5 stock f250 with 400,000ish

The options should have been 6.9 7.3 6.0 - and the answer would be any year 7.3 with stock power levels.

But there are 4 generations/versions of the 7.3.

been a diesel tech since we were doing warranty work on the 6.9

ive seen a 6.9 with over 500,000

ive seen 7.3 idi with similiar mileage

the highest mileage powerstroke 7.3 ive seen had 830,000 miles ,and many with 300 to 500

ive seen only a couple of 6.0 with slightly over 200,000, havent been out long enough, i think there is potential to get some higher mileage

the 6.4 hasnt been out long enough either but so far so good and i do believe the potential is there also to get high miles

in my opinion, the 7.3 powerstroke is gonna be the all around best , has prove itself time and time again, but if the 6.4 stands the test of time , i think the potential is there

They are essentially the same - just differet induction/aspiration systems and programming really

Hey it's your poll, not mine! My vote is for the 7.3 and I had to choose one, so I went the middle ground - the 94-97 7.3!

The only problem with the 91 and back trucks is that they had a 5 digit odometer.

Couldn't help myself!

I'm sorry this is really a terrible first post, but I think it is laughable to even put the 6.0L in the running for this. Don't worry I didn't vote not gonna screw up your poll, just wanted to share, the views of a troll
