400K on Diesel

This guy sounds like he's fit in pretty well around here. He can take a hit or twelve and keep going.

This Classic 1996 Ford F-350 Still Shines after 400,000 miles!

My oldest wants a truck and I've been looking at Fords on Craigslist and such. The 7.3's seem to be very robust and a workhouse of an engine. I thought it would be neat to put one in a Defender until I found out they weight 1,000 lbs!

Haha - it would be a cool project - that engine could move 37's around pretty good I bet!

I like those bodies a lot too. I would love to get a single cab 8ft bed but might have to find a short bed extended cab for family passengers and not sure they came like that in that body style.

I have the newer body style truck and it just turned 400k on the last run to Baltimore to pick up Johan's 130. The powerstroke 7.3 on a tuner is amazing. I see 25lbs of boost pretty regularly.

There was a thread about a guy who took an old 1960's international scout and put the International/Navistar 7.3 powerstroke drive train in it. He used the ford front springs to support the weight. Said it drove amazingly.

A 4cyl Isuzu or Cummins 3.9l with turbo should have zero issues turning 37's

Those newer bodies come in the extends cab SB... I like those too

Newer IH diesel in an old IH Scout sounds just right!

About 5 years ago, got a call from a guy in South America that used his G-Wagon to tow a tank trailer he used to extract used hydraulic fluid he renewed in factories.
His G-Wagon was powered by an OM617 which at the time had 1.5 million miles without having been rebuilt.
The guy heats the hydraulic fluid to precipitate the water out, then runs it through a centrifuge before it goes in his fuel tank.
