Longevity mods

Hey guys,
I just bought a 2000 cclb dually with 47000 miles on it. Looking for suggestions on any mods I can do to make this truck last as long as possible, maybe coolant filter, etc. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Re: Longevity mods

if you want it to last, you mise well not even touch anything, just keep up with the maintenance, you've got a jewel of a motor with little mileage so you should be golden. as long as you take care of it it will take care of you

Re: Longevity mods

The list I am going to give will be highly debatable. I will give reasons for them... you don't really need any of them. Fluid and filter changes will trump any of these mods. Fresh fluids and fuel will keep this little beast running for a long time. These mods are just things to do if you want a little more insurance...keep in mind. Anytime you mess with your truck, you always have a chance of causing an issue. Classic case of, if its not broken don't fix it, kinda thing. That being said, here ya go.
6637 intake and 4" exhaust (free flowing air in and out)
Hutch and Harpoon (help keep air out of injectors, let's u top off your tank)
FRx (helps keep air out of injectors)
HPx (evens out oil pressure to the heads)
6.0 trans cooler (keeps trans cooler)
Coolant filter (keeps coolant cleaner)
CCV mod (keeps oil out of intake system)
Clean your EBP tube...little maintenance thing that gets over looked. I am guilty of this.

Re: Longevity mods

The words "longevity" and "mods" don't really go together. Longevity means maintenance and mods means playing with fire in my opinion. These trucks come from the factory as a set of common denominators and as soon as you change that with mods, you are taking chances.

Maybe adding things like a coolant filter would fit both.

Re: Longevity mods

If your truck was made before February 2000, you need to upgrade the transmission cooler. There is also a Ford air cleaner upgrade that you should do.

If only those who knew what they were talking about replied, this thread would still be on page one.

Re: Longevity mods

Is there any cases where doing the Donaldson B085011 filter and an exhaust has affected longevity of an engine? 444-4D, you mentioned an air cleaner upgrade, what has to be upgraded on it? Thanks again for the replies

Can't think of any on the exhaust but if you don't get that filter sealed up good, you can dust your engine.

Re: Longevity mods

Toss the leaky prone air box and throw a 6637 filter with adapter on it. Very easy to get a good seal and eliminates up the restrictive factory box. Id also put a good free flow exhaust on it as the filter and exhaust together will gain ya a bit of mpg more and cooler egts. Besides that keep good quality fluids in it and regular maint on everything and it will be long lived.

Re: Longevity mods

Thanks for the info guys. I think I'll do an exhaust and intake, and a coolant filter. How about a swamps modded IDM? Would that help the stock injectors last? Or is it more of a performance mod?
