A little off-shoot from the "What did you do to your 6.0 today?" mega thread.
Very simple idea here, show what you bought for your 6.0 today.

Today was an expensive one for me:
-Upper and lower balljoints, both sides
-Center links
-NUC Oil by-pass filter kit
-Couple bottles of Archoil

Looking forward to posting install photos in the "What did you do to your 6.0 today?" thread.

Picked up the cable kit today, holy carp those cables are HUGE, they should be able to flow a lot of electricity. I'm pretty impressed with how flexible they are for their size.
Since my Leece alternator hasn't arrived yet, anyone see any reason I shouldn't go ahead and install this massive cable kit? Should I replace the 250A fuse with maybe a 150A?

I didn't buy it, but picked up a console from an Ex today. Mainly for the front cup holder, I swapped the one from mine for the cubby when I sold my 2000 and have been kicking myself ever since. This one has the rear cup holders so that will be nice on road trips

Got all my Edge EAS parts and BPD fuel filter cap today

Nice! A 90 degree 1/8” male to 1/8” female NPT fitting would work well with that fuel filter cap! Just a suggestion. Those electronic senders are always so bulky kinda a PITA.

Bought a 90 and 45 as the filter is right nex to CAC pipe and would be my luck the 90 once tight is pointing at the CAC and no room for sensor

You should be able to back it off just a little bit to get it in the spot you want.. as long as you put some sort of thread sealant on the threads of the fittings and you have a decent amount of threads threaded in. There’s also a test port on the front of the fuel filter housing too that’s an option as well, kinda keeps everything hidden and out of the way. Those caps tapped on top can be a PITA for sure. Most reliable spot for fuel pressure readings would be off that test port on the housing anyways.

Gonna install this weekend - might end up going Russel braided lines/remote mounting. Possibly off test port, still to be decided. Been pouring rain here so not a chance to get under the hood and fully investigate.

Thanks for the feedback - appreciated.

Joy of being a 6.0 owner. BPD cap doesn't thread all the way down before it is seriously tight. Gonna contact BPD next week - threads on cap have blunt edges on the end threads not sure if that is the issue with it not going tight. Original Ford cap threads are tapered to a point on end of threads. Have ordered Russel fittings/hose from local parts store and going to mount remote off of test fitting port. Drowning my sorrows with a beer.

I’m sure this probably isn’t the case.. but just checking, just judging by the second pic of the cap that doesn’t have an o ring on it, did you take the o-ring off your old filter cap and put it on the BPD one? The BPD caps don’t come with their own o ring, as the o rings come with the OEM fuel filters themselves.

Just pre fitting the cap to see if I required a 90 or 45 degree fitting to put pressure sensor on. That is as far as the BPD would go in and was basically at a point of having to force it to go any further and I've learned if something has to be forced you are gonna break/damage something.

BD Diesel Y-pipe/Up Pipe kit , and updated oil fill drain tube kit for my turbo.
So far I purchased UCF O-Ringed Heads ported and polished, with Victor Reinz head gaskets.

I also purchased Marty’s regulated Return system.
I had regretted not installing a regulated return the last time I had my engine torn down and the heads off.

I'll be curious how they work out for you. I have a couple out and I changed them a few years ago, so LED would be nice.
Are the LEDs dimmable ? Most of the time full bright is TOO bright for me, especially if I'm on a road trip

Work in the marine industry and bridge lights have to be dimmable. Is a PITA with LED's as some are dimmable and some pulse when dimmed and require expensive dimmer controls. Is a crap shoot on dimming DC LED's, good question to ask when purchasing.

That's what I thought. I'll stick to regular bulbs when I need to replace.

I don't really like LEDs anyways

I will post some pics as soon and let you guys see for your self. Personally, I don't like them really bright or it's more of a distraction. But, they're dim-able.

On a side note, about a week ago, I was feeling a slight vibration while running down the road. Checked u-joints and the carrier bearing and all looked good. Then last night, I smelled something odd after getting home and heard like a crackling and popping sound. Almost like a hot exhaust when it's cooling off. When I walked to the back of the truck, I could feel the heat coming off the rear wheel. Even the rim was hot to the touch. I know it's not the brakes since all those have been done. So with 177K on the ticker, I'm certain it's a wheel bearing. I had been planning on changing diff fluid already, so today I bought all new wheel bearings, wheel seals for both sides, and new diff oil. Should have it all done by tomorrow. I will have pics of this as well coming soon.

I had something real similar on mine about 6 or 8 months ago. It ended up being the e brake. There was a lot of rust on everything. I ended up doing the brake cable, calipers, backing plates, bearings and seals.
