I had a 2002 F250 with the 7.3 TD until 2016 when I finally got a Ram Cummins. I put over 250,000 miles on that Ford and only had to replace the transmission and differential gear. The engine was bullet proof with no repairs at all except religious routine maintenance even with a tuner applied "towing tune" on it. [emoticon]

I did several upgrade to my old 99 7.3. DP tuner, 4" exhaust turbo back. AIS air intake, along with the 6.0 intercooler ,6.0 transmission cooler, big reason I probably never really had any big problems with my 4R100 transmission ,kept it a lot cooler towing a big fifth wheel . Plus gauges to monitor ETG's transmission, and turbo boost. I knew several that had to replace their transmission ,got them hot too many times . It just didn't have the power to handle a big fifth wheel in the mountains.
