old thread but I figured I'd throw this out there-
I traded my '07 6.0 in July (I loved that truck) for a 2011 6.2 F350 Lariat gasser. "Diesel is more expensive, motor is an expensive option, blah blah blah...". I drove it for 2 months and hated it. 12-13 mpg around town unloaded and very easy on the throttle. The tranny seemed to constantly hunt for the 'optimum' gear. Biggest thing was that the front end is sprung the same for both the gas and diesels - the lighter front on the gas seemed to chatter over every little bump in the road and had a real skittish ride.
Long story short - I traded it in less than 60 days later for the 6.7 and have been smiling ever since. Some thing are worth the money. Good thing, too, as the wife says that I won't be visiting the dealer lot for a LOOONG time...
