Sold my 24v CTD and bought my father in-laws D-MAX. Needless to say I am kind of dissappointed. My Cummins pulled my Trailer with ease, though it was built. Kind of scared to chip my D-MAX. I heard the trans will go into limp mode. The D-MAX only has 82k, not bad for an 02 lb7. There is an 04 6.0 with 166k on craigslist that I like. What do you all think?:confused:

Thanks. The miles kind of scared me. How do I check about the warranty work? The guy said he has not had it long, he just wants something different. The truck has an intake, 4" exhaust, and gauges. It looks really good, but like you said I do not want some one elses problems.

Get a dealer to run an oasis report on it and it will tell you if it has had any warranty work. I wouldn't be afraid of a 6.0, mine hasn't let me down yet :wall:

How are the auto trans behind the 6.0 chipped? Can they handle a good amount of power before it needs upgraded?

So with a sct tune the auto trans will hold up with a good amount of power? I know that every vehicle has a weak link, would the heads be the 6.0's?

I would say the head gaskets are the weak point of 6.0s but if your gaskets fail you can stud it with ARP studs and be good to go. SCT is the best for the 6.0 because it actually tunes the transmission.
