6.0 vs 7.3

I am buying a new truck soon an I've been lookin at getting a 99-03 7.3L f250 because of the reputation of that engine. I recently been thinking about the 03-07 6.0L because it has more power but I not to sure it's a safe idea from it's rep with all the problems they had with it. I no the late 6.0s (06-07) were good but have been able to find any 06 up in my price range. Any opinions on getting a 03-05 model or should I stick with the 7.3.

The 6.0 is a great engine, has its issues, but so does the 7.3. Maybe not on the same level as the 6.0 though. Drive one of each, see what you like, and go for it

It's hard to hurt the 7.3. The 6.0 you can hurt those.
