Read this on what causes head gasket issues.
Things to consider about owning a 6.0L

Prior to buying a 6.0, get a monitor to check ECT and EOT delta after truck is up to operating temp, while driving steady at 60-65mph on flat ground.
A cheap monitor would be a ScangaugeII for around $160.

All 6.0L's have the headbolt issues from the same root cause.

As stated, read up and learn about what you're getting yourself into.

Don't get scared off the 6.0L, it can be a great power plant, it just can't be neglected like the 7.3's of old.

Here's a write up to consider as well: Write Up: Bullet-Proofing the 6.0L PSD.
