shifting through the gears with your hands and feet is a masculine pursuit of man mastering the machine

duh

"The rear axle and suspension are stock, too, and look “exceptionally for a 20-year-old truck with 1.3 million miles on it,” as Pickup Truck Plus SUV Talk says."

Oh god, 1.3M-mile old shocks, springs and bushings. That thing has to be one of those old SDs dangerously swaying in all three axis and bobbling all over the roads I see constantly here in Texas.

Very impressive. Diesel engine, Texas, that helps I'm sure.

It's a 7.3, we had an E-350 make it to around 700K before the company gave up on the disintegrating body. Also, the guy is a hotshot driver, which means he spends a lot of time cruising down the interstate, not banging through the gears in town-and being in the rust-free south is a HUGE advantage!

Seems like a pretty smart guy. Cares about his customer, doesn't put any cheap parts on the car.

He uses Motorcraft oil/filters and recommended BG fluid exchange services. Michellin tires only.

Interesting to hear 1 million miles out of the original injectors with BG Diesel fuel service regularly.

Still not shifting a lot, probably not beating on it (like I probably would, to be totally honest). The ZF 6 speeds aren't horrible, but my indy's wrecker driver has had some issues with them (nowhere near 1M miles, either). I'm just amazed by the lack of rust on it-the Fords of those years are all ate up badly around here-but still clattering along.

Or, per a recently banned poster, you do a completely engine flush every OCI.

Forget the mileage, that only supports the lovefest of the manual transmission bros.
