First off I have no intention of starting a 7.3 vs 6.0 war but I do have some concerns. History - my 2000 7.3L F350 Crew Cab 4X4 Lariat was taken out buy a guy who ran a red light. Insurance totaled the truck. Heartbroken, I've been looking for 3 months in Southern California for a 2000 to 2003 replacement 7.3L and I'm not having much luck finding a duplicate truck that's worth picking up for a reasonable price. I've been seeing lots of 6.0L powerstrokes that would fit the bill but I'm hesitant to go that route. My buddy had an '03 that gave him some issues but he also has an '06 that has been a good truck. What do I need to know about the 6.0 that would help me make a decision on a truck? Or should I keep on looking for a 7.3L to pop up?
