How Many Miles On Your 6.0L W/O Studs, Tuners

Just curious how many miles some of you have on your bone stock 6.0s. No studs, tuners etc.... Have they been trouble free miles? What year?

Lol. I didn't say that I had a long attention span...

160K on a 2004. Relatively trouble free. Cracked flex plate and - later - a smoked 5R110 (according to the rebuilder it was because of Mercon LV. Thanks Ford.). The rest has been regular stuff, really.

I drive an '04 6.0 company truck. I'm just about to roll 235k. Mine was good until about 160k. Since then I've been through three intercoolers and a couple of degas bottles. Also know this truck runs constantly loaded to within a couple hundred pounds of GVWR.

Just finished studding my '04 (original owner) at 125k, been nursing seeping head gaskets for about 25k
Killed mine by running a cheap tuner that made lotsa giggles and black smoke with no monitoring, I think that when the EGR cooler went it was the final nail in the coffin

I have an 04 here with nearly 400,000 on it and I donít believe itís been studded. No tuner on it either.
