I would rather have my 2005 f250 back with the 6.0l then my current 2008 F-250 all I can say is for the few thing to change on the 6.ol to make it a better truck it's still alot better then all the crap that's gone wrong with the o8' in the first 70,000. My 2000 f-250 with a 7.3 was indestructible but a turd stock. Nice truck I had the exact same model only dark grey for a couple of years. I like the silver.

you will love that thing man, they worked out most of the bad stuff by that year, so you wont have to worry about anything.... Just make sure to put ARP head studs in if you get a hot programmer. Stock ones will stretch and bad things will happen.....

Nice truck!!!
