1992 Ford F250 XLT 7.3 liter idi from North America
This is the best pickup I've ever owned!
Rotors and pads worn-out, had to replace.
Window motor burned out at 217,000.
Transmission slipping at 220,000.
Vacuum pump went bad at 219,000.
Leaking break booster at 217,000.
Had to replace vacuum belt and alternator belt at 215,000.
Head rest rattles, along with the passenger seat.
Truck runs and starts great in all kinds of weather.
Sure parts have worn-out, but that is expected with a truck over 200,000.
I love this truck and have put a deal of stress on it by farming and hauling trailers, along with stop and go driving in dirty conditions.
My only major concern is the e4od transmission. Under load the transmission slips. We have replaced three of them on our other Ford trucks. However our one Chevy has been replaced twice.
The truck is naturally aspirated with a K&N filter on it.
I install a Wix standard filter on it during the summer months, because of the extremely dirty conditions.
Overall I am impressed with the truck, and how the 7.3L performs when under the gun.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

How about a 1992 Ford F250 7.3 L with 396,038 miles, hauling 5.2 tons of roofing shingles on a dovetail trailer with a combined weight of 18,320 lbs when weighed on the scale. This is a sturdy dependable truck; would not trade it for a new Ford truck.

I don't see how you can base this off a truck that had such high miles.
I own a 1995 F250 with 140k miles on it. I keep up with oil changes (10w-40). I get about 14 MPG city, and close to 19 on the highway on an empty load.
I just redid my clutch plate, fly wheel and pressure plate, but that's only because my throwout bearing broke on a hill climb.
Just because you bought a sour truck from a guy who probably didn't take care of it, don't give it a bad review. Anything is going to break in a car/truck at 200k+ miles LOL, I don't care what you own.
I love my truck. It does everything I need, plus a ton more. I suggest you rethink your review about the big 460 Fords.
