Now, the cons........ the uneducated comments when they find out you're doing all this in a Ford 6.0 diesel!

First time I've ever heard someone call the 6.0PSD "dependable". Unless it's been "bulletproofed" to the tune of several thousand dollars like someone else mentioned. Glad you've had good luck with your 6.0, but you are definitely in the minority there and those that claim otherwise are anything but "uneducated". Sort of like saying "those uneducated people that say the Earth isn't flat."

Our 2008 5.7 Tundra Limited has been doing a great job for the last 7 + years. Close to 80K on the clock, I think she will do another 80K real easy. Our trips total roughly 6K - 7K a year. A good match for our Rockwood.

I have had no problems with my 6.0 and it could pull a house. Not all 6.0 where bad. I take good care and do the maintenance on it. Have 133,000 miles on it just took it in to have maintenance on it. It cost me over 500.00 bucks but when put on the computer which cost me 99.00 bucks it went through the whole engine. I sat and watched it on the screen. Everything came back in speck. Thank god....

If you're running into multiple people everywhere you go that are aware of the massive issues the vast majority of 6.0's had, it should tell you something! Where's the "in denial" emoticon???? Once again, glad you've had good luck with yours, but to pretend the problems that plagued the 6.0 are a hoax is quite a stretch. This is coming from a Ford fan that owned a 7.3PSD and a 6.7PSD. But NOT a 6.0PSD because of the multitude of friends and family I had that ALL had problems with them.

I have heard that the 05-06 models weren't as bad as the 03-04, but can't confirm that. I think a different EGR tube was used that mitigated some of the issues with that system. But, you do realize that if 50% of the trucks had a catastrophic failure within, say, 50,000 miles, there would be thousands upon thousands of people with your testimony, right? Just because we can produce accounts of happy customers doesn't negate the fact that it was a seriously flawed design that caused thousands upon thousands of people some serious problems. This is the same logic smokers use- they find the 90 year old like George Burns that smokes and say, "See, smoking is good for you!", even though volumes of evidence say otherwise.
