    06 is the 6.0.

    08-09 is the 6.4

    Haven't heard about head gasket issues with the 6.4 though. I have a couple of friend with 6.4s and they like them.

    ^^^what he said^^^

    2006 had the 6.0 diesel in it....and ny then they worked out a lot of the problems the 03/04 6.0's had in them...For 6.0's 05-07 are the best chioces.

    I've also heard the 6.4 is sweet...all kinds of power, but bad in mileage.

    I have 51k miles on my 08 6.4. Its been in for a busted radiator hose clamp and thats it. It pulls like a freight train and rides great. I get approx 15 mpg highway, 11ish in town, and 7-9 towing/plowing. I'd buy another 6.4 in a second. :D

    I guess if you can live with the poor fuel mileage. They are on the good and the bad list. You get a good one your golden. But if you get a bad one eehhh. Sorta like another motor we all know. The Cadilac 4100 in the early 80's. LOL bet you though a 6.0 bash was coming
