Im goin to check out a 6.0.. need some opinions..

I found what I think is a pretty good deal. I love my 7.3 but i need a 4x4. Im not very familiar with the 6.0, being a first year truck, any common problems i should be looking for? i figure if its been on the road for 6 years and 120k miles, its not one of the junk 6.0's you hear about.. any ways, here is the link lets hear it.. thanks guys.

Drive more than one 6L so that you can see what they are like. I didn't like the 03/04 that I drove. I thought my 7.3 was way better but the 05/07 were way quicker. So that is what I bought is an 06.
