    I currently have a 07 Tundra, but need another truck for bigger landscape projects and to tow dump trailer. (Can't rent one with 1/2 ton)

    This '99 F250 has 131K miles. At what point do problems start occurring?

    This truck wouldn't be used everyday for mowing/maintenance work. I'd still use the Tundra for that.

    Any opinions would be much appreciated. Thanks

    ive got 165k on mine but ive only had it for a couple months. as far as i know it has not had any big problems! keep up on maintenance and it will last you a long time.

    While the truck still has plenty of life left in it, it has been my experience that as soon as you hit 100,000 Miles a trucks starts nickeling and diming you to death. Tranny might need to be rebult soon.... new starter.... new alternator..new hub bearings...ball joints...u joints etc...... I have an 01 f-250 with 108,000 miles and although its a great trucks, every time I turn around there is a new stupid problem to deal with.
