On the 6.0 question, be afraid of the later 03 models and the early 04s. If you can fine a late 04, 05 or 06 then you'll be okay. If you want to go back to the 03 or 04, just make sure you get one with over 60k miles on it and have Marc or Rodslinger get you an Oasis report by VIN number and see if it has spent any time in the shop for the reasons the 03s were made famous for...injector failure, turbo failure, egr issues HPOP seals leaking...and the list goes on. If it has few miles on it, it's likely these proplems haven't emerged yet and there would be no history to look up on Oasis.
I have an 03 and have not had ANY of these issues and i got 62k miles on her so I'm not worried much anymore.
