Mine has almost 60k on it. The only engine related problems I've had were a coked up turbo, dirty EGR, and exhaust drone. The turbo was cleaned under warranty. I cleaned the EGR myself, and an aftermarket exhaust shut up the drone. The original exhaust could have been fixed by an adjustment procedure, but the service manager at Commonwealth Ford was too dumb to read a TSB. I wanted a new exhaust anyway, so the problem solved itself.
There are people that have trouble prone 6.0s, but there are trouble prone 7.3s, and 5.4 gassers... You name it. If you keep the 6.0 well maintained, it shouldn't be any more likely to fail than any other diesel if you leave it stock. Now, if you tune it, you are much more likely to blow gaskets, have EGR cooler problems, etc. Having said that, many people here have 100k on their trucks with a lot of that running a tuner and haven't had issues yet. It's just luck of the draw.
