New 6.0 to me

Never had nor thought much about having a diesel before until my wife insisted I buy a truck that would pull our boat from TN to Gulf Shores, AL. I've refused to pull it with my Bronco since the boat is a little heavy for that distance. I have been pleasantly surprised with it's pulling power. I got a 2006 6.0 that had almost all interstate driving and had been taken care of. I still plan to do the mods to make sure I get all the miles out of it I can. This seems to be a great site for good info.

Thanks for the responses so far. Tthis site already seems to be a much more friendly bunch than the site I've been a member of for a long time(Fullsizebronco.com). One big prick and several small ones. I'll always keep my Bronco but I'm learning real quick why so many of you all identify yourselves as compression ignition addicts.
