I'd say the most common problems are EGR cooler and oil cooler related problems with headgasket failure a distant second. If you keep the truck stock, you're very unlikely to run into headgasket problems.
My truck has almost 60k on it, with the last 23k running tunes and driving hard, and the only problem I've had is the turbo was coked up, noisy, and sticking. I don't think the previous owner ever ran it hard enough to burn the crap out of it. Since it was cleaned, I haven't had any other problems. You can fix the EGR problems by bypassing it, something I still need to do myself.
I wouldn't be scared of the 6.0, especially an 06. The Cummins is a great motor, but the trucks just suck.
