Yes, HGs have been a problem for some 6.0s....but don't let that stop you from getting a truck if you like it and if it is in good condition. Besides, a LOT of 6.0s out there still have plenty of warranty left. For every one that actually blew gaskets, there is probably 6, 12, or even 20 more that are running strong.

Good luck in your search.
