  3. 6.0L Problems Forum
    So after scratching my head for some time now, I figured I'd break down and ask the advice of those who probably know better than I do. I've had my '06 CCSB 4x4 6.0 for about 7 months now. It has a hair over 116K miles on it now, and has run great since I bought it. It was totally stock when...
