Glad everyone enjoyed the update. Having said that I do have one beef with this truck in that the Ford programmers allow the truck to perform a regen when your fuel tank is almost empty so it can put you in a bind to find a gas station real quick. They shouldn't allow a regen to occur when you have 50 miles or less to empty.


That is seemingly small but valid complaint. There are several software areas on my Ford where they really could have done a better job with just a tiny bit of effort. My biggest complaint though is the FOB. If I keep it in my pocket while working buttons get pushed, locking me out of the truck and/or setting off the alarm. I don't have that problem with my older Fords. Software wise, I really tracked the fuel economy of each trailer and remembered brake settings for them. Some trailers need separate settings for empty and loaded. And really the truck should be able judge whether the settings are correct by monitoring deceleration during brake application.

Last November (2019), I came across a guy at that had 486,000 miles on is 2017 F-350 SD. I posted up a pic of the odo on the FTE forum. He sent me another pic in early Jan of this year with 502,000 miles on the odo. He hauls high end horses across the country and he had had almost zero issues with the truck.

Current mileage, 216,069.

Repairs,
Fuel pump at 180,000 miles
4 headlight bulbs & one $20 harness to right head light bulbs.
1 license plate light bulb.

Maintenance items like spark plugs, filters, belts, fluids and 6 sets of tires. It likes tires. [emoticon] Replaced factory shocks at 171,000.

I'm still running on the factory brakes. I'm totally amazed at that.

Specta,
That's an excellent truck. Still running factory brakes at ~216k miles is amazing.

Still original water pump?
