Nearly 500,000 Miles

I purchased my F250 Ford truck in February of 1999. With almost no mechanical failures since then, I am very satsified with the service I have received from this truck. Obviously I have maintained the vehicle well to get such great life from this truck and I am wondering if Ford may be interested in talking to me about my story and this truck. I have just passed 477,000 miles on the odometer. The engine has had nothing done to it other than oil changes, drive belt replacement and a few leaks fixed.

Other than the usual maintenance items that are needed with all vehicles, I have changed the clutch (once- at 180,000 miles) and had some work done on the rear differential. That is all! What a great truck! I have used this truck to pull a pontoon boat and a travel trailer (about 9,500 lbs.) with ease.
You may be interested to know that I am getting 21MPG (combined) due to driving at 60MPH mostly on the freeway.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss my story of this truck further. I have even more information you would love to hear about (some has to due with purchasing a new 2005 Chevy 3500 diesel and selling it after just two years).
