First time Diesel owner

Hello folks, I've been lurking around on here for a while trying to find some info on my new (to me) '05 F-350, 6.0L. I have done some research on the 6L before buying this truck so that I could make a more informed decision. I have done a lot of work onmy past trucks and am no stranger to most machanical work, but these diesels are something I've NEVER before got into. Ive had this truck for a couple months now and I am loving it so far. I would greatly appreciate anyone sharing what things I should do to this truck to avoid the "common issues" these things get. I would like to thank the moderators that run this site for making this available for Diesel Noobs like me

Cheers, R
