    I am very scared of a 6.0 but it's a nice looking truck, I haven't drove it it's 8 hours away on Ebay.
    The Ford is cheaper... equal miles and condition trucks

    I have heard that if they made it to 50,000 they are bulletproof...the 6.0 was kind of a crap shoot of an engine!

    Uhh, if I am reading my computer screen correctly(VIN 1FTSF31P63ED81641). The truck has been in the shop 9 times!!!:eek: 6 times for engine problems and 3 times for recalls. It doesn't specify what the recalls were, but sounds like a typical 6.0 Liter to me. I would be careful.

    Oh, and I meant to add that I have a 2003 6.0L and it was great...until about 50,000. Had to have the engine rebuilt(under warranty of course), but now it has me nervous and I don't think I will be keeping it much pass another 20,000 miles. I hate to sway your decision to a Chevy since I depend on Ford as part of my livelihood, but the 2003 to 2005 6.0L was a dark cloud for the Super Duty. If you can pick up a 7.3L or something newer than 05, I don't think you would be disappointed. Good Luck.

    I have driven/plowed with an 06 6 leaker with over 50k on it and it was far from bulletproof. Shooting it may have been the best option actually.

    It looks like there have been a few problems with the truck. The recalls seem minor(not related to the 6.0L). But looks like the truck has been in twice for the same symptoms on the engine. See Below:
