Actually, I've replaced all that stuff. The injectors were about $200 for all 8. The injection pump was about $1,000 parts and labor (I did the injectors myself but had a shop do the pump).
The lift pump on this one is actually mechanical. I replaced that as well, and I don't think it cost too much. I have an old diesel Mercedes that ran all the same fuels as my F250 and it has the inline Bosch pump. The Mercedes pump has not flinched, but the truck pump has crapped out twice! I'm selling the truck now. If I get another one, I'll get a Powerstroke.
I don't mean to spook you about the engine you got, but I would definitely recommend you be very careful about your fuel. Make sure you have a water separator, keep your filters changed, and I would think twice about running biodiesel or straight veggie oil.
