looking to switch

As of right now i have a 95 2wd v6 for what i drive in the winter to get me around. as for the summer i drive a 02 vette. i'm thinking of selling both and getting a 04-06 6.0 lifted tires rims the whole 9yards. i am sick of driving this piece of **** in the winter just wondering what you guys think of this. no more vette but have a good truck for the winter. i also have a harley for my summer fun so thats not all gone.

Definitely do it. Pretty much everyone on here will tell you the same thing (it IS a Ford diesel forum). Make sure if you get a 6.0 that you get one that already has head studs. This will save you a few grand and a lot of headaches. These are great motors once you take care of the egr/head studs/oil cooler issues...the oil cooler fails and it leads to the other parts failing. Very expensive to fix it right.

Go for 05-07, preferably the 06 for all of the updates and not as strong of emissions control compared to 07 that hurts the performance and mpg than preious years.

well to pay for all these toys you gotta get to work and a superduty will surely go threw any snow. then save up for a c6 z06. i have two payments left on f350 i bought my vette outright five years ago. so im looking for a year of no payments then 2007 C6 Z06

Not true. The '07 has no more emissions than the '06. The '06 and '07 are the same with the '07 having a slightly different turbo. Only the '08+ trucks have the increased emissions crap.

To the OP, I say go for it as well.
