I have an 06 Harley truck and besides the egr and oil cooler its been great, and i drive the crap out of it. I hate the reputation people give the 6.0. This is my first ford and my first diesel and i will never go back to chevy. Sorry for going on and on, just wanted to give my 2 cents..
Ya I agree for the most part. There are just things you have to watch and a few things you have to do to them for them to be reliable. Its sad that we have to fix Fords' design flaws, but it's really a pretty good engine, and the power you can get out of them is pretty awesome.
Im in St. Louis right now in training for my new job and right next to the building is a Manheim Auction building. We see alot of the cars that go into the auction, it's amazing all the 6.0s I see. Pretty sad because I guarantee you that most of them have the typical 6.0 problems, and once fixed, would run like a champ. It sucks that your typical 6.0 owner just doesnt know anything about them.
But ya I wouldnt hesitate to buy one, just watch the temps, and aim for a 05-07.
