Ugh. Michigan. Too far for me. But, for others, What's the mileage and any rust? SRW or DRW? 4x4? Sunroof? Any of the engine updates done already?
2005-2007 are the best years for these. With the oring and STC fitting updates these trucks are pretty reliable. The value is increasing on these trucks around here now that they are more widely understood. I'm holding on to mine for a long time.
Best of luck on your sale.

Actually the 6.0L is a reliable engine, if maintained.

I own one and am on several forums. The engines are great but there are certain things you should do to increase reliability. My 6.0 has been trouble free for 140,000 miles but I am religious about maintenance and correcting problems before they start. The 6.0L is also the last of the non DEF engines.

I don't care what brand of diesel you own, each has their problems.

I have a 2004 F250,,,,,bought it at 72,000 after the previous owner replaced the EGR valve cooler.....I now have 120,000 on it,,,,no problems. Once a week, I take it out on the interstate and floorboard it from 30 to 70,,,,,my diesel mechanic said it's good to blow it out......I also have never put a drop of diesel into it without adding Lucas fuel treatment. I change the oil every 6000 miles and the fuel filters every other time I change the oil. I get about 14 MPH with it. When I'm towing in the Rockies,,,such as Monarch Pass,,,,my truck doesn't even know that it's towing 9500 pounds behind it. It does great.

That is wrong, my 2010 6.4 was none DEF but did have the DPF, 2010 was the last year for none DEF Ford engines.

The 6.7 starting in 2011 was the first DEF required engine for Ford SD trucks.

all you have to do is type in 2006 ford 6.0 diesel for pages of issues Lawsuit Against Ford 6.0L Power Stroke Super Duty Diesel Engine |.

I turned down a ford 2006 350 dw 6.0 with only 30,000 miles on it a year and a half ago because all i could find about them was bad . and he was only asking 14,500. for it . gotta wonder why the price was so low and why the mileage was so low . maybe because it was in the shop more then on the road
