Hey guys, I wanted to hop in here and introduce myself. My name is Mark and I am a very proud owner of a 2006 F250 extra cab. I have owned Fords a while back but I lost confidence in the quality and reliability of them and veered over to Nissan. I traded my Nissan truck in on the F250 at my work, I work as a technitian at my local Hyundai dealership here in Vero Beach. I have heard the horror stories about the head issues with the 6.0 so before I pulled the trigger on the deal I took it and hade it completely inspected by a ford diesel master tech and I was told by him that the truck was in excellent condition and it has no issues whatsoever. Let me tell you a little about the truck, She has a nice set of 20 inch Welds forged wheels wrapped in a set of Nitto Trail Grappler MT tires 35's. She's sitting pretty on a 6 inch (estimating) Pro-Comp full suspension lift with a nice set of Quad pro-comp front shocks. the engine is stock everything except a small little tuner on it that I don't have a whole lot of confidence in (not sure of the name) but its said something like MS-8 on it or something like that.
My plans are to install a nice Diamond Eye 4inch turbo back exhaust and complete the EGR delete to help out with the fuel mileage. It does have a decent aftermarket sound system in it that sounds pretty good ( some kicker speakers and an amp)...the deck that was in it was a DVD player which I didn't like so I changed it out and installed a nice kenwood deck with Bluetooth.
I know at some point I may have to deal with the head studs but ill cross that bridge when I get there.
here is a picture of it...
