Newbie to the 6.0

Hey guys, I am now a new owner of a 2005 f350 xlt CCLB with only 22k on it. I have to say that I knew I was buying a truck with potential issues, but after doing my homework especially with the information provided by everyone one here( thanks guys)...some of those fears I had where put to rest. As far as the low mileage goes, should there be any problem areas I should look into ? The truck as far as I was informed was used to pull there camper and that was it. Thanks guys.

Long gone: 05 F-350 6.0 CCLB with 28k, 2'' leveling kit, Edge cts,850cca bats , blue spring mod and bone stock...for now

Howdy, and welcome to the ORG.

Two threads I'd recommend you read:
Things to consider about owning a 6.0L
Write Up: Bullet-Proofing the 6.0L PSD.

As long as you know what to look for, you can prevent most of the issues with the 6.0L. Enjoy the new truck.

Welcome and don't believe everything you hear about the 6.0
they are good trucks. Post up some pictures when you can,
before you do anything to it put a good set of gages on it.
