Not sure if you are aware of it but, the factory 3-36 warranty transfers to you (with the title transfer) and you can extend the full factory warranty through Ford Motor out to at least 70K miles, something I did with my off lease Focus I bought earlier this year.

With all the electronic engine management gizmos and on board in cab electronics, I consider it a good investment.

I shied away from a third party extended warranty, too much fine print and too costly.

If you look in the owners manual under 'warranty', there is an 800 number you can call and get it extended. It's not third party, it's administered entirely by Ford and honored at any Ford dealer anywhere, anytime.

I bet GM has the same deal too.

My 2011 only has 30,000 on it. It had 14,000 when I bought it in February.

Not always, oil cooler stoppage from poor maintenance results in an EGR cooler rupture. Maintain your system, replace or remove the EGR cooler, replace the oil cooler, no power adders and perform other recommended repairs and the 6.0L will treat you right.

What I refer to is the head bolt stretch issue on some 6.0 engines, not emissions related issues, thought I'm sure there are some...

There was a heat treat issue with some head bolts that allowed them to elongate over time, resulting in perforated head gaskets. Not all engines are impacted but some are and like I said, the only way to pull the passengers side head is to pull the cab. The rearmost 2 headbolts cannot be removed any other way....

I suspect the 'elongation' is accelerated by hopping up the engine as well and that is a popular thing to do today.

Glad I have a 7.3 Navastar OBS. Not the most power but pretty bulletproof.

Ford's overhaul / maintenance issues began when they shortened the hood and set the engine back under the firewall

Ford has a 'better idea'...lol

The main culprit of head bolt stress is coolant entering the combustion chamber when the EGR cooler over heats and ruptures. The cooler ruptures because the engine oil cooler plugs with silicate particles from the Ford Gold or casting sand. A coolant filter helps prevent the blockage but the true preventative is maintenance.

A 6.0L can have the head removed in the truck. The A/C box has to be removed and the engine can be lowered in the chassis when you remove the engine mount. The 6.0L can also be removed from the front of the engine bay through the radiator support.
