The 6.0l will last many thousands of miles with proper maintenance (change of oil basically).. The other components that are used in addition, may not last that long unfortunately. (Example: EGR valve, EGR cooler, FICM, Turbo, Injectors, Glow plugs etc...)
My 6.0l has run 80,000 problem free miles. The last 20,000m have been REALLY hard on it but I have changed the oil every 4,000. We pulled the heads to install better headgaskets and ARP studs and found I still had the cross hatch in the cylinders and no cracks in the pistons (not that there should be).. So if after 80,000 and almost no wear internal, yes, the 6.0l will last a long time IMHO.
