04 F-250 126k

I have a 04 F 250 6.0 with 126k..Truck has never had a problem (knock an wood).. The truck also runs perfect except for it runs like crap for a few minutes with a cold start..I have been thinkin about trading it in cuz of horror stories of 6.0's but do you guys really think I should?? If it has never had a problem do you think it will strat now since it has 126k on it or do yall think i have just got one of the good 6.0's and shouldnt worry about it???? please give feedback

I wouldn't sweat it, the 6.0s are not as bad as the horror stories out there, I've had my fair share of troubles with mine but I still love the truck. Any truck can break, any truck can have problems, Its kinda a roll of the dice. Worring about it dosen't do you any favors. Just drive it and enjoy it! my .02 cents

Yeah, do like marc says, get the newest flash for cold starts. I had mine done several weeks ago and now wished I had done it sooner.
