Thanks for all your time,I to find out as much as I can before I make a purchase.
Boy this is a hand full
1- I get 14 town, 9 pulling a 14k 5er, 19 freeway unloaded
3- Change all oils and filters, an antifreeze flush use only Ford filters get an Oasis report.
4- Install a coolent filter,gauges i like the Edge Insight, fuel pressure gauge and no tunes and if you want to keep the oil clean install a oil by-pass system i like the Amsoil system
7- Keep it stock
The 6.0 is all about maintenance
