The first 7.3 I drove (actually a non-turbo IDI) had north of 300k when it was replaced. :icon_ford:

My 99 has 263000 i believe or 265. Just keep them serviced with regular oil changes and the normal stuff and youll get thousands of miles on em.

I am just asking because I had a 6.0 liter within my budget with low mileage. 18500 for 41k miles. in canada thats about half of what the vehicle is worth and now all that I have in my budget are gas jobs.

7.3's and 12 valve cummins are the only diesels in my budget.

screw owning a dodge.

7.3's are known to be tough..... just... there not as peppy as a stock 6.0
