First time diesel owner

Hello, Im from Florida and I just bought a 2006 f250 XL ext cab long bed 4x4 with the 6.0 turbo diesel. The truck I bought only has 74,000 miles on it but the night after I bought it I blew two injectors and had to take it back to the dealership to be repaired. Ive heard some bad things about the 6.0 is this just the beginning of a long list of problems. I really like the truck, and I joined this forum so I could learn how to do a lot of the work myself.

6.0L are known to have issues, with that being said, with the right upgrades, it can be very dependable and strong. Don't jump ship yet. Do you research and read threads here on the forum. Ask as many questions as you can think of. Lots of 6.0 owners here who Love there trucks.

Thanks for the reply, I came here to learn how to make my truck as reliable as possible, also I'm on a tight budget of an e1 so I plan on doing a lot of the work myself. If I blew two injectors I'm guessing I should go ahead and just replace all of them?
