I may purchase a 1990 F250 4WD Supercab with a 7.3 Liter Diesel, It has 220,000 miles on it .... Are these vehicles known for extreme longevity? I know the engine probably is, but what about the rest of the truck? Especially since it a 4WD. I know alot depeneds on how well it was taken care of, I'm asking in general terms.

KBB says its worth $3300, They are asking $1900 ....

Had a 1985 F-250 with the 6.9l Diesel.

Ran it till it died. They only things that ever broke on it were the rear axle seals.

totally depends on the care and abuse. You should have the drivetrain inspected before purchase. look at the condition of the lubricants, seals, and the gear teeth.

I've got 310,000mi on an 85 C-10, all but the first 25,000mi are mine. Burned up the top end of the motor through my own neglect, at around 295,000mi.

Try to get a list of recent repairs!!!
Jack up the front end and check the ball-joints t-rods c-v and u-joints ect
I have seen 7.3s run over 300,000 but they are expensive to repair if you have problems with injection pup or injectors ect
good luck
