    well, been lookin around at trucks for a while now when this truck really caught my eye. its a 2006 F250 XLT FX4 with the 6.0 diesel with 55k miles. i know the 6.0 are problems but did carfax and oasis and its a completely clean truck from florida with a spotless oasis report. took the 2.5 hour trek to check this thing out and it was completely spotless, mint condition. best part was the price, 20.5K. ive seen this same truck selling for 26-28k. i must say the Lenz Truck Center in Fond du Lac, WI is a class act place. they have an unbelieveable selection of trucks at damn good prices and they tear these things apart and go over everything on them. all trucks are near mint condition at this place. but back to mine, so excited to finally get a diesel, love this thing. hopefully i can stay lucky and have this truck treat me well. cant wait to pick up a plow over the summer and get this bad boy ready to move some serious snow next winter :D

    Actually, I wanted to buy that truck, so I sent them the vin and it came back as a clean vehicle. And then I called lenz to get some info cause I was waiting for my taxes.
    So I;m guessing that someone must of tipped u off? none the less, thats a bada** truck.
    Good luck:nod:

    very nice. but you copied me! i just picked up a red 2006 6.0L this past week too. except mines a dump. check out my thread. i was a little leary after hearing everything about the 6.0 but the oasis on mine came back clean too. from what i understand the 2006 6.0 had the least amount of claims out of any year. i hope both our new trucks serve us good!

    yea, saw your dump. looks sweet, wish i had use for something like that. did a lot of research on these trucks before i bought mine and as you said, i was told by many people that all the bugs except the usual EGR crap and the headgaskets under tuning were worked out and should be as reliable and long lasting as any 7.3. keepin my fingers crossed for both of us, about 800 miles and so far so good :drinkup:
