I finally got rid of my Cummins and am going back to a Ford. I was set on a 7.3 until a few hours ago. Need some opinions from people who know more than I do about these trucks. Here are the options:
1) 2000 F250 7.3L 130k miles, edge chip, straight pipe exhaust, 6 inch lift, 37" tires, motot metal rims, 2007 headlight conversion (about $11,500)
2) 2006 F350 6.0L 150k miles, Banks turbo back exhaust, 8 inch lift, Rockstar rims, New 38" tires (about $14,000)
Both are Lariat Crew Cab Short Bed, 4x4, and automatic.
I have heard a lot about 6.0s being unreliable, have owned an 04 and had some trans issues, but also heard the 2006-2007 were good years for them. From a bit of research I would at the very least install the EGR block off kit and most likely some head studs too. Like I said, would like some opinions from some people that know a bit more than me especially about the 6.0 as I am looking to buy a truck this week. Thanks in advance!
