Any Good 6.0 Diesels?

I have my eye on a 06 F350 DRW with low miles for its age, I am considering it but I am skeptical because of all the Horror Stories I have read and heard about with the 6.0 Engines. Are there any good ones out there? I know there has to be because I see a lot of them on the roads, I would like to hear what some of you have to say about them.

140k on my '04. Totally stock. Never had a problem. I bought it at 75K. Changed all filters and fluids, even break and power steering -- just to have a good starting point. You never know if the 'jack wagon' before you ever changed the oil.

IMO stay away from mods, change oil and filters....allot....and you'll be just fine.

06 F250 KR, 80K, Daily Driver, no problems at all. I absolutely love my truck, actually my wife says I love it more than her. It dosen't talk back or have any high maintenance issues . Plan to keep them both for a very long time.

07, 6.0, 148,000 klm (95,000 miles). Love the truck. Daily drive. I pull nothing. Just change filters and fluids on time or earlier. Drive it like you stole it once in a while. You'll be proud to be behind the wheel.

If your commin, it's over. If your stroken, it's just started.
