"Bought this 2006 in 2012 with just 15k on it. It has 45k on it now with no issues over the two year period. I had major issues with the last 6.0 engine I owned but this one has had no problems. I expect to drive it for many years to come."
Pros: "Work horse: pulls big loads like they're not there"
Cons: "orig EGR oil cooler turbo WILL fail. Replace them"

"Bought this truck new in '06. Love it for pulling 17K worth of horses and trailer - it lives to pull heavy loads while giving a comfy ride for passengers. In 2013 (with only 36K on it) the dreaded 6.0 flaw showed up (EGR failed, oil cooler failed, turbo failed). The truck at that point was in mint condition so I decided it was worth the approx $11K to add the entire Bulletproof (aftermarket parts company - check them out!) package and new turbo. Now it runs flawlessly and I hope to drive it for at least another decade with no issues. The 6.0 itself is a great engine - just replace those weak components (NOT with Ford's parts!) and you will have a great truck."
