Miles And Miles To Go

I  bought my 2001 Ford f-350 4×4 ext cab, 7.3 liter power stroke diesel from Dan Wiebold Ford in Meridian Idaho.
I am obsessive about maintenance, and had all my maintenance done at the dealership at the factory intervals. I now have 1,208,000 miles on this TRUCK!
The only things I have ever done, was replace the brake pads, and at 500,000, replaced the water pump! oh yeah I  replaced the alternator, and batteries  at 200,000.
what an amazing truck! I always either had a Chevy or a Dodge prior to this. the most I ever got Was maybe 250,000 miles (Chevy)
I hope to keep it running another couple of years! I run “hot Shot freight”, and tow a gooseneck trailer and stay on the road.
Best truck I ever owned! (I have all the service records, and photos of the odometer time and date stamped).
My next truck will be another Ford F-350 4×4.

I was very disappointed to see the Ranger leave the Ford lineup. I have owned 4 of these great trucks and have been very pleased with them. I drive my '95 with 180,000 miles to work 30 miles away everyday. I'm not sure if the people at Ford don't read these ideas or what, but there seems to be enough people that would like to see the Ranger come back. I believe that many of the ex-Fords would do well if marketed correctly and built with plenty of available options. Vehicles like the Ranger, Crown Victoria, and Bronco (a personal favorite that I'd love to see come back) were so popular at one time and seemed to just fade away. An all new Ranger with engine options such as a small diesel and manual transmission designed for fuel mileage would be a great sell. As well as other engines to choose from for people looking for power. Maybe some trims such as xl where I could chose vinyl floor, crank windows, but still have aluminum wheels and chrome bumpers and grille outside. I've noticed in Australia they have multiple engines with a variety of cab choices. Single cab, extended cab, crew cab, short bed, long bed, no bed, manual transmission, automatic, the options go on. I would like to see Ford bring some of these Australian Rangers to the U.S.A., put the steering wheels on the correct side (notice I didn't say "right side"), and see how they sell. I'd be interested.
