New in CO

I'm currently looking at getting my first powerstroke but have been told to stay away from the '03 and '04 6.0L because they have had too many problems. Can I get some opinions either way? Thanks

to the ORG!! As far as those two years I drive an 04 and have never had any problems with it since I have owned it. My Mom has an 03 that she bought new and the only issue was an EGR valve.

You should start a thread in the 6.0 general discussion for your question. I have seen a lot on here that have 03-04 PSD's and love them, and few that don't. If I was you buy an '05 with the new front suspension, it rides better and the turning radius is awesome. You should also get an Oasis report on any PSD your looking at. Where are you in Co?

I'm in Aurora half the time and Fort Collins the other half. Welcome to the site. It's cool seeing more people from Colorado.
