The only thing it may cause issue with is the turbo. The VGT has a tendency to rust and cause binding when they aren't driven daily.

I don't think that you will have any problems if you only drive your truck on the weekends.

A week isn't bad. Personally I would add some fuel additive and have at least a few good accelerations on the weekend. This is one of the benefits to a 6.0L - enjoy it!

I don't mean to hijack the thread here, but how hard are short trips on the 6.0's? I've been looking at 05-07 crew cabs as the regular cab I have on my 150 just doesn't cut it now with a kid.

I've been riding the bike back and forth to work, 40 MPG even when I'm hard in the throttle. Though I still need the truck after work to pick her up from daycare which is only about a mile from the house.
