7.3 Transmission Issues?

I am looking into buying a later 90's or early 00's SMB with the 7.3 Powerstroke. I work for the Park Service and it seems that I have seen a lot of the transmissions that are mated with the Powerstroke go out. I know it's all in the way you drive it but one vehicle we had was on it's 3rd transmission and another one had the transmission replaced after 50,000 miles. Also, I'm noticed that a few SMB's that I have looked at over the last few months has had the transmissions replaced. Is there a problem with these years transmissions and should I just count on a replacement if I do buy a SMB from these years? Thanks.
