    Nice truck best advice i can give you as a fellow long time 6.0 owner is get yourself a scan gauge 2 it can save you thousands in the long run by monitoring the trucks vitals.

    good looking truck. now swap a cummins into it. or headstuds, hpop o ring upgrades, stc fitting upgrade, head studs, egr delete, oil feed tube upgrades and dummy plug upgrades for the hpop system. and only run ford dealer supplied oil filters in it so the anti drainback valve gets seated properly.

    Look up "6.0 bulletproof kit". And seriously consider it.

    It has just about all of that except the coolant filter witch I will be doing in the next couple weeks. That was the only reason I got the 6.0 knowing that was all done.

    Do you know what springs you have in the front ? They come with three diffrent ratings and you will need the heavy ones to hold a Wideout easily.

    Nice truck! Gotta love the 6.0 trash talk. My 6.0's are ran harder than any around and have over 500k between the 2. I love me a 6.0. Anybody that would do head studs or the like on a problem free 120k miled truck needs to have their head examined.

    Do any of you know if I need to cover the grill on the 6.0? I know on the 6,4 they were getting snow plugging the intake.

    Get a scangauge 2 or edge insight, do oil changes religiously, and drive her hard!
