"Very nice heavy duty pickup truck. The one ton does ride like a truck and is not as "cushy" as a chevy but will out perform a chevy as far as towing and or hauling. If you're looking for a pickup that you will using it for pulling a 5th wheel or big heavy trailer or hauling a large camper and or any other cargo then this truck is the best choice."
"I have made several changes to this truck including a 4" exhaust, an upgraded Fule Inj Cont Module, and a good aftermarket intake air cleaner. These improved my fuel mileage and reduced the work the engine had to do. Eg. before the engine required 9-10# of boost @ 2000 RPM (62 MPH) and after these changes, 6-7# of boost. Stock intake filter and the 3.5" exhaust strangles the engine.
The other major fault for the 6.0 is the branch tube fitting (loads of info on the web). Make sure this has been replaced or do it now. This engine uses oil pressure to make fuel pressure and is a good way to ensure oil pressure is up before start. This system requires clean oil, something difficult to maintain is a diesel. Change the oil every 3500 mi or you will have injector issues. A good mechanic can easily keep this truck running for a long, long time."
Cons: "the dash could have been finished a little better"

"Great truck with plenty of power and sounds like a diesel should. Pulls a 14,000 lb trailer easily. A ride that you would expect from a 1 ton truck. Mild mods have improved ride quality. Keep the maintenance current and minor mods to the 6.0 and you have a workhorse."
"I bought this truck new, only had one problem, which was taken care of quickly. have a 10k lb. RV and have towed it all over the country several times with absolutely no problems. now retired and don't need a truck any more, I would never hesitate to buy another ford Super Duty if I were to need one."
