I just bought a 06 F250 with 15,000 miles and I'm wondering what problems I might be in for?
Is it being a 06 that that I'm lucky and most earlier problems are fixed?

:ORG welcome:

I will have to say that I have been extremely happy with mine. No issues to date, and I have a few mods nothing over the top and I run ID's extreme race tune as my daily driver. With that said I don't dog the heck out of it either. So, so far so good :icon_ford:

I myself just purchased a 2006 F250 with 31k on it and hopefully there won't be any issues with the truck. After running an Oasis report the only issue so far was the previous owner replacing the EGR Valve at about 30,500 miles.

I have about 20k on mine, and haven't had any issues with the truck, except for the death wobble. Its still there after taking it to the dealership 3 times, but it is much better and driveable now. IMO steer away from the Edge products, they don't like the auto trannies. I have the SCTXcal2 with ID's tunes, and have been running it on the street tune since about 6k. Interestingly enough, "ID's Eric" just got some good props from a guy featured in the latest diesel power mag.

The edge was a bad decision. You should of gone w/ SCT custom tunes IMO. From what I have read on here and seen w/ my buddy's 6.0. Nothing but problems...

Curious, after all that was said to you about the SCT why did you go with the Edge?
