maybe tradin my diesel

When I first started lookin for a diesel bout 7 or 8 monthes ago I found an 06 350 that I wanted but price was not right so I SETTLED and got my 03 250 and got ripped off. So I found out the other day that the dealer still had the 06 so I went and talked to him and we are working on getting a deal goin so may have to take a few thousand dollar loss with my trade. It sucks but its what I wanted. Are there any problems with the 06 350's that I should look out for? What do yall think?

YES, there are problems with every motor known to man. If you want it and can afford it, get it. Not gonna be happy until you got it. Can't take the truck with you.

Like Dave said, most of the 6.0 issues had been worked out by the time they built the '06's. Still not perfect, but what mechanical beast is.

Just like any truck pull the OASIS and do all the normal inspections and stuff you did before you got the '03.

Im just torn between the two because I dont want to take a loss with my 03 and I just lifted it but I have wanted the 06 since day one. The 06 also has like surface rust on the underbody, frame and driveshafts is this kinda typical bc my buddies is pretty much doin the same?

Are you having problems with your 03? If not keep it. The 06's still have problems just not as much. The only real difference is the coil spring front end. The rest is cosmetic.

take the money you would put into the 06 and instead buy an 05+ axle and do the coil spring on your 03 and you got the best of both worlds. best suspension and best motor, of the 6.0l.
