Question 1: Why not post this in the classified section (the appropriate place to put an ad)

Question 2: Why not replace the couple things it needs for $600ish (if you do the work yourself) and ask the actual value?

Answer 1: I will move it over there. Didnt really know about it.

Answer 2: Im kinda tight on money right now. I plan on fixing what I can and if I get it all fixed I'll raise price.

Not to be a downer as I love my 6.0 and think it's a GREAT engine platform when properly monitored and maintained properly, but if you can't really afford to fix $600 worth of minor repairs on your current truck than a 6.0 is definitely not for you at this point in time. These trucks can be finicky and can nickel you to death if your not prepared ahead of time to take the necessary steps in bulletproofing them. Just my $0.02.

Don't get me wrong as I enjoy these trucks just as much as the other 6.0 enthusiasts if not more lol. I just know how much I have into mine to make it what I want and for it to be to the point of reliability that I don't need to worry about regular 6.0 problems. Now I just have to worry about ME breaking something lmao.

I think that's a good idea, BUT doing so will greatly raise the asking price of said vehicle. If you have good credit why not get a auto loan on a truck that you can pick up cheap to keep your payment low then get a personal loan and bulletproof it yourself that to me sounds like a better plan as doing so teaches you the ins and outs of the 6.0 and allows you to have a more complete love for it lol.

Lol so I can have a more complete love haha!

That may be what I'll have to do idk.... I'm just putting some feelers out there and researching my options. I love the 7.3 I really do. Mine is awesome and Dad bought a 96 brand new and has 382,000 miles on it and is still driving it. They're awesome trucks. But, Im just wanting to experiment a bit with some other powerstrokes. I was looking at 6.7's but my credit aint that good! Lol Im not too interested in a 6.4 though. Ive heared they had more problems than the 6.0 but Im not too sure on that.

The 6.4 is a good engine as well. Only problems I have with the 6.4's are the body style isn't my favorite but is nice and 90% of common failure engine repairs require the cab to be lifted to complete them.

The 6.0 is a great engine once all of the bugs are worked out of it.

Most of the issues with the 6.4 are emissions junk related. I second the stay away from 6.0 stuff stated above...

I didn't say stay away from the 6.0. I said that unless he is prepared he may end up with an experience he won't be to fond of later on. The 6.0 is an amazing engine and super simple to work on. It just takes some extra love, time and money to get them where you want them to be sometimes is all. There are A TON of STOCK 6.0's on the road still to this day that have never had a problem since day one. The problems with them lie in owner neglect. So many people think they can buy a 6.0 and treat it like they did their old 7.3's and never maintain them or monitor them and this is simply not the case.

The 6.0 needs a owner who is diligent about maintenance and monitoring. Hell most of the problems with the 6.0 can be caught and repaired before knocking out anything else if the owner would have just monitored the engine vitals.
