Bought my F-250 @ 122,700 miles. Currently @ 294,500 miles and getting best FE ever.
Original engine, clutch, drive axles. Been through numerous radiators and rebuilt starters. It's on its second rebuilt injection pump. Rebuilt transfer case in '04. Replaced clutch release bearing @ ~245K when it 'sploded. Last replaced front brake rotors and pads @ 195K miles - still about 10mm remaining on the pads. Replaced rear brake shoes @ 125K miles.

Replaced the engine at 245,000, and 510,000 miles, the transmission at 510,000 miles. The original engine was the stock 8-valve CX engine, the 2nd engine was the standard 16-valve Civic engine, and the 3rd engine was the VX engine. Still running on the original shocks.

My best guestimate is 350,000 miles on the Dodge/Cummins. The odometer quit long ago at 296,000 miles. It was an ODOT truck before my ownership, so only about 120,000 of those miles are mine.

That's a lot of oil burning right there.
