6.0's can be problematic and pricey to repair. best advice would be to get an OASIS report and see what has been done to it while under warranty.

Call Boomhauer and he'll get you a dang ol Oasis report man.

Sorry, couldnt' resist. I LOVED that show, too bad they cancelled it.

Anyhow, a few of the guys on the site will chime in about getting you an Oasis ran.

Good luck.

I love my 6.0 and haven't had any issues so far.

I have an '06 and I must say so far so good. For every horror story you hear on the 6.0 I'm sure there are hundreds who operate trouble free. Take good care of the maintenance and it should repay you in kind.

AND YOU SHOULD HAVE A VERY GOOD MACHINE
Worry free for the most part after all that.
Mines being done right now has 53,000 miles perfect OASIS report and I'm doing all this for preventive maint. so I don't have one of the great 6.0 issues bite me on the butt while towing my camper this summer.

That gives you an idea if I was buying one outta warrenty I'd do all that and have a great truck,mine still has 5 mo war left but it's been charmed so I'm not taking anymore chances.
