Buying my 1st Ford next week. 2007 f250 cc sb fx4 lariat with 60k on her for $20k. Never owned a diesel or a Ford but have always wanted one and finally found one I can afford. The truck is pristine as it has been garaged kept with no mods besides tint. Any recommendations where to start?

Pretty much that they have a bad rep for blown heads. Other than that completely new to diesel.

Ok. Do you happen to have a way to hook up a monitoring device to it? It would be nice to know how healthy the FICM (Fuel Injection Control Module) is. Along with your deltas (the degree difference between your EOT & ECT (Engine Oil Temp & Engine Coolant Temp). That way you know if your oil cooler is clogged or not.

A few things I would do after that would be to get rid of the Ford gold coolant. Put in a EC-1 rated coolant along with a coolant filter. A egr delete would be nice also.

There is a 6.0L section. Go there and read up. If you got any questions start a new thread and ask away. You will get all the help you need with it.

Oooo. I hope your ready to open your pocket book. When the go fast goodies start, it's hard to stop.

^Couldnt have said it better!

Sometimes u will want to role your 6.0 off a cliff but most of the time you will be bragging about it, showing it off, and making an endless list of mods and upgrades and to-dos... Its pretty addictive! If you read up on here about how to service and take care of it correctly it will last you a lifetime.
