What is the life expectancy of the Triton V10 engine?

(1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty)
in Surprise, AZ on September 18, 2011
I bought this truck at 159,000 miles a few months ago and am right at 161,000. I only use to pull a 5000 lb. travel trailer.

We have not seen any failures of this engine. Usually the rest of the truck starts falling apart before the engine. Spark plug problems can get complicated, however.
Almost all engines these days will go well past 500,000 miles with proper care.
The only ones that do not last that long are the smaller engines that run high rpm when cruising.
