I just bought mine last March and i specifically looked for the 06 and 07. This is because they have the factory upgraded Head bolts. These arnt as good as the aftermarket most guys are getting but off the dealer floor they are much stronger then the 03 and up.
Ive read the 06 and 07 have the least amount of issues only due to them being out a few years so a lot of the bugs were worked out.
As for what i am doing, im getting my exhaust opened up, onboard tuner/programmer with gauges. Coolant upgraded with ELC and filtration system, Zoodad for the intake for right now.
When i got my truck it only had 46K and was well maintained but i went and changed all my fluids and filter.
I would expect if you buy used you would want to do the same thing to get a good baseline.
These 6.0 are said to be very reliable and great trucks but you have to stay on top of the maintenance. Pay the costs to maintain them and they run forever.
Tons of great people on the site and have tons of knowledge
So what was the upgrade on the head bolts? Never heard of this?
