I have an 03 6.0 crew 4x4 .... 188K and only problem has been 2injectors and HPOP ... Everything else has been great and the 03's are known for the turbo's .... They whistle like crazy

My 03 runs great. I did have some EGR problmes but thats no biggie, thats with all of the 6.0's. Iv got about 118000 on it. I ran the Oasis and found that the previous owner had a couple injectors replaced but nothing major.

People give them a bad rap but I've seen my fair share of 05+ with problems
