looking at 04 6.0 with higher miles ??

Looking at possibly buying an 04 F250 Ex Cab 4x4 with the 6.0, it has around 150k on it and I am wondering if all the 6.0 problems should be worked out on it now or if they are just beggining. Any info would be appreciated.

well, that depends on how well it was maintained, whether it's been studded, had the EGR deleted, whether it's been babied or rode hard and put away wet. I'd say run an OASIS report on it, and check it out thouroghly. here's a link: What to look for when buying a used 6.0L
