I'd say YES, based on my '03 F150. It's at 205k. Original 4.2L V6 engine with only maintenance done to it. And original 5spd manual with nothing done since the slave cylinder went out at around 50k. I haven't even replaced the clutch...And the truck has NOT had an easy life. It needs some tlc for the suspension. And the rear axle is crooked from being T-boned. But it still starts up and runs anytime, I'd drive it across the country if I needed to.

See it's very possible.

my old '03 F150 has about 210k miles. Obviously short of 400k. But it's on original non-rebuilt engine, tranny, axle, etc. I haven't even replaced the clutch since the slave cylinder went out at 40k. It's been used and abused and wrecked twice and hit a few deer, but it still drives. Though it could use some work, that's why I bought a new one in '16

Reminds me of an old joke. I have my great great great grandfathers axe. The handle had been replaced five times and the head 2 times but it was his axe. Yes if you keep replacing parts over a million miles is possible.

Have seen Many Trucks in our dealership with over 1 million miles on them. Many being more than 10.

Some of them were rolling heaps more than not they were spotless well taken care of vehicles that people knew was their tool they used that made them money.

I think the quicker you put miles on it, the better chance you have at reaching 400K miles on an original engine and transmission, because, your hours will be less and sensors and components won't age out.

the only vehicle I've ever seen in person like this was a mid-2000s Toyota Land Cruiser, just lots of miles and all original components.

My daughter has the old 98 F150 as a second, purchased new, it's been around for awhile. It's at 350,000 miles plus, 4wd, original engine/trans 5.4L w/E4OD/4R100. Michigan Truck, cancer will be it's demise, going quick now. Had a long run with that truck.
