New injectors $600
New 6.7 $60,000

You want to spend the extra $59,400?

When I bought my 6.0 I planned on studding it etc. because it would be reliable and wayyyyy cheaper than a new truck. Think about how much money you would have to spend to equal a new 6.7. It's crazy IMO.

I could have bought a newer truck, no 6.7 but a solid 08 or 09 but I prefer the 05-07 exterior and they are a ton cheaper because everyone is afraid of the 6.0. I have bulletproofed it, lifted it, modded it and done a bunch of other stuff for the price of the stock 6.4 and a solid 30k cheaper than a new one

6.0 is still cheaper to mod/fix than buying a new truck.

Buy a Ferrari. Lol. IMO you can get more out of a well put together 6.0 than you would out of a 6.7 and the 6.7 grill looks like the word FORD with parenthesis around it. Lol

It would only be about 12k to get into a new one, crew.cab... It's hard to decide... I'm not all there when it comes to working on these...

By the time a bulletproofed 6.0 goes out Fords will come with Cummins. LOL

Since you plow as well you would have to change over the mounts and lights which is more $$$
