No problems with mine so far and i love it! We usually only hear about the problems on the internet and not the ones that are out on the road workin great.

I have had some problems that are typical of the 6.0's, but I love my truck... At first, it was a very frustrating experience, but now that I've learned a few things, it's quite different. The best part is to be informed so that you don't get the runaround from the dealership! These forums are very powerful.

My first was an 04 the only time it went back 3 times was a short in the wiring harness. So when you would take off it would stall. Finally found it. Traded that in on the 06,Seems that the mian issue wiyh 6.0L is the fuel injectors. This one only has 10,000 on it. But got such a deal on it could not refuse to get the new one. I have run my 04 at -27 degrees at 75 mph pulling a 20ft snowmobile trailer without a hicup. Does much better at fuel ecom than my gas truck did. 10 to 11 gas compared to 14 to16 diesel. Even thou diesel is higher than gas would not go back. $100.00 to fill up yesterday 3.50 per gallon.

I love my truck, however my Turbo was replaced at 60K and i've had a few EGR issues, my AC control unit died at 50K. My wife has had a few issues with her F350. All in all no truck is perfect, we like the Ford Design, interior and ride. IMO the Dodge is a POS with a great engine under the hood and the Chevy's just dont do it for me.
When someone builds a perfect truck I promise I will be the first in line to get it. Till then I am sticking with Ford.
