Is this to high.

I'm looking at buying a 2006 6.0 with 119679 miles and 3645 hours my question is that too high of miles to do basic performance mods. It would be used as a daily driver and tow rig. It's priced right and is clean but I'm not sure about the miles. Also how long do the 6.0s last if token care of.
Thanks.
Jesse

I have an 06 with 205k miles on it and 4500 hours and it still runs great! i think its all a matter of how its taken care of....I didn't start doing mods until 170k miles...so is it too late to do perf mods? NO...As for how long they last its also a matter of how its been driven and taken care of I think. My buddy tows a racecar with one and it has 297k miles on it and still running strong on the original engine and tranny...

I bought my 2004 f250 in 2010 with 165000 on it. It was used as a service truck to check the guard rails along the highways in AZ. I've had to replace the ficm, oil cooler and batteries. All of which are known to fail on the 6.0s.

That's an avg MPH of 32.83 I thought mine was low at 36 and change. What's low? Are there things he should watch out for because of that avg MPH?

Read a pole and the average was around 30MPH so I would say its about average then. Its hard to keep 40 MPH on a diesel if a person lives in town.

Sounds like a good truck. Go for it, do the basic repaires to it, change fluids, convert to ELC, get guages and monitor temps.

Another question- is there any big differences between a 2005 and a 2006 motor/truck I'm looking at one of each the 05 has 109000 and 2700 hours were the 06 has around 119000 and 3500 hours. There both nice and both crew cab short beds. Is one year better than the other.
