I wanna buy a 6.0

Hey guys, I did introduce myself a while back, but I haven't been on the forum lately. My name is Owen I used to have a 2008 chevy 2500 lmm, but I sold it. I am now currently looking for a ford. I know the 7.3 was the best motor ford built, but I really want a 6.0. Now I have read on here how to bulletproof it and all that stuff, but my question is, does this really stop all the issues? I always hear people *****ing about their 6.0 but I personally think they are really cool, and I am willing to put money into it for my truck. Thanks in advance for replies!

As long as you know what to expect and monitor then you'll be fine. That goes along with proper maintenance as well. I love my 6.0 and I think the 05-07 are the best lookin trucks on the road

06 F-250 ccsb King Ranch, 2011 KR interior AC seats, door panels, 3" RC lift, SCT X3, WILDMAN tune, bumpers, Edge CTS, AMSOIL bypass kit, pillar gauges, ARPs, Warren 155s, egr delete, 4" exhaust...the list goes on and on

2004 Toyota 4runner 3" lift Shrockworks bumper and 285's

NO Snowplow!

A snowplow usually means the truck was beat... I love the 6.0, mostly because I like seeing the look on everyones faces when they make fun of the 6 leaker, then it leaves them smelling diesel fuel and burnt rubber

In my line of work I need a plow, I know the rules of plows but this would be my second used truck with a plow, and I didn't have issues with the other truck.
