maybe the fastest year of the 6.0 but the 03 6.0's are hit or miss. i had one but like my 05 6.0 better. actually a 05 with my 03 turbo is best of both worlds lol

if you need it for landscaping and gonna tow a heavy trailer and maybe plowing in the winter, i would def get the 7.3 but try finding one with a rebuilt or aftermarket trans.
