It is also a good engine from what I have seen.

I've got a buddy who's brother's company does excursion, 6 door and raptor conversions. I guess they make them for people all over the US and even local dealers will have him convert new trucks. Its . He has his shop just north of Edmond, Ok, in Guthrie. You will have about as much in one of these as you will a new escalade.

His is the 6.0 but it's had all the mods and fixes... and has been bullet-proof for the last 400K miles.

AGREED do your research BEFORE you buy a 6.0 PSD so you can make an informed decision

BULLET PROOFING isn't cheap but nothing with any diesel is

Thanks for all of your help. I have a few options that have a 7.3 and I have a buddy that's a mechanic that offered to check it out thoroughly before I make a purchase. Thanks again!
