so i wanna know something honestly

okay are there any owners with the 6.0 most particularly the 04 or 05 models that have not had any problems whatsoever? i always read these horror stories on here, and all over the interweb about how these 6.0s are nightmarish. i had my 04 6.0 for 84k miles before i had any problem at all. then the egr went, injectors, blew a piston, wiring harness. all within 3k miles of each other. i drove it from jersey to california where my buddy knew someone who smashed up his 04, but kept it for parts, and wanted to buy another. i sold him mine, and it had 91k or so, and i made it no problems to california. it was a good motor, but the longetivity wasn't so good. wouldn't buy another one, but if i had one given to me i would run it till it blew.

I did about 40,000 with my 2005 and didn't have any ENGINE problems...
the accessories on the other hand... blew a PS line under warranty (less than 15,000 miles) and A/C sprung a leak while sitting in my driveway one day at 37,000-ish

My A/C died twice, a little oil leak, and ongoing tranny issues.

03/04's had some problems, 2005's is when problems seemed to be ironed out. Remember there where hundreds of thousands more Powerstrokes sold in 03/04 compaired to Duramax and Cummins combined. Cummins and D-Max's had thier share of problems as well when the new models came out.
