    Looking at a f-350 srw v-10 with 178,000 on clock. Given that oil changes have been done regularly how many miles can I get out of motor.

    Depends on what the truck was used for. The motors are pretty strong if taken care of, should reach 300k with good maintenance.

    I would be more concerned about the transmission and suspension. Any other details on what the truck was used for?


    And Welcome! Make up an intro thread so we can get to know you :cheers2:

    What will said. Look out for the Transmission, suspension, ball joints, wheel bearings etc.. Those are going to eat your wallet alive if they haven't been done yet.

    Must be a solid looking truck for you to consider purchase.
    Dig a little deeper maybe a longer test drive on a rough road for a suspension work out.

    Gas. Gas stations are what you're looking for. You'll get use to stopping at them...

    Welcome aboard by the way!

    Thanks guys for your input. Truck looks purty clean if I can get price down a little think I will pull the trigger on it. I already have almost the same truck but the engine life has me more concerned than anything.
