6.0 For a daily driver

First off I have been lurking around the forum for a few weeks and have learned a lot about the 6.0. I wont be towing anything heavy, heaviest thing will probably be a couple street bikes. I also won't be taking it to the drag strip, not saying I won't ever put my foot into it though. Now I know your wondering why do I want the truck then, because every time I pass one I double take and wish I had one. Also I have always had high HP cars, and when I buy trucks I only keep them for a few years and sell them even though I need a 4wd. I want to buy a truck that I like enough to keep several years and all my friends with the 6.0 say they are the best truck they've owned.

I daily drive mine, tow ect....Mods are in my sig. If your willing to put some money into it. It will be a great truck. haul a$$. And run for a long time. If you worried about fuel cost it might not be good. I spend anywhere from $100-120 every 5 days. I could care less even if diesel Is $5 a gallon in still going to drive. And I drive a LOT

Thanks for the quick reply. I'm not really worried about the price of diesel, if it gets to bad I have a street bike I can ride and also have a little 2wd s10.

Honestly if you buy a truck I would buy one off here from the classifieds or somewhere else that already has everything done to it. It'll cost more up front but it will be cheaper then you having to do it.
