Just keep the oil changed and you should be good to go. I use Marvel Mystery Oil and 10W40.

137,xxx on mine and no issues with the motor itself in the year I owned the truck. It did have 110,xxx miles on it when I bought it though, so I dont know what the PO replaced already.

Default 174,000 miles

I've got an 02 quadcab with 174,000 miles. The only problem I ever had was the radiator blew when I was flooring it passing someone and overheated it. Later blew a head gasket. Other than that, the inside of the engine looked great, very little wear. I change the oil every 4k and get the tranny and diff flushed/changed by the dealer on schedule. I love this thing.
