If you need a truck that keeps running stick with a ram thatís why we are running 6 rams daily and the 11 and 15 fords are parked till summer. The 6.0 fords have left for a reason they are garbage.


 :chuckle:  :chuckle:. Now your comparing 11 and 15 fords? Good try. Again like Iíve said before own one before you start talking crap
you canít be that stupid to think we havenít paid a repair bill on a 6.0 Ford

This is seriously the most amusing thread I have ever been a part of. Where did I say the business you work for hasnít paid a repair bill for the 6.0? Now thatís stupidity. Maybe read before you comment  :chuckle:

I have an 04 with 150k. All bone stock. Never any problems. Yeah if your constantly pulling 12k and hammering it your gonna have problems and I wouldnít recommend this truck if thatís the way you drive. Otherwise they arenít as bad as most say. I wonít give up my 6.0 anytime soon. Tons of power and the gas mileage is phenomenal
a neighbor just brought home a load of hay with a RAM from soap lake. 35000 lbs and my dad followed him with a load. Neither a Ford.

Jackelope I must respectfully say this, Inline 6 diesel is head n shoulders above any V-8 and should not even be debated.  100% true.  I owned 7.3 Ford and loved it but the Cummins is far better.  I crap on 6.0 to save others the $ and headaches.  Newer ones all have emission fuel related issues.  Pre emission is 5.9 #1, 7.3 #2.  and Detroits the loudest!!!

I don't disagree with you at all. Especially on the older 5.9's. The Cummins is a better engine. But those trucks have other problems aside from engines. Transmission issues, front end issues, injectors, injection pumps...

It's funny though. My buddy owns a forestry business. He had a 2010 6.4 Powerstroke dually that had a lot of problems. He had a fuel tank in it and it was his daily driver. I will add that he was absolutely horrible about maintaining it. Like....30k mile oil change intervals. He blew the engine up in it down south somewhere. Paid a crap ton of money to replace the engine....then he blew it up again. We were able to warranty it. Soon after that he traded it in and bought a new Dodge Ram 3500 dually. Can't keep it out of the shop.

I'm not trying to argue here...all I'm saying is all these heavy duty pickups have issues. No brand loyalty here either...I drive a Jeep!! Don't tell anyone.

Ask a normal diesel mechanic about the ford 6.0. Then ask the persons I gave each 1 to :bdid:

My lead diesel guy drives a 6.0. We work on 30 trucks a day here. No shortage of diesel trucks here!!

Good luck with your 6.0  fords.


Thanks but donít need any luck! All about maintenance just like with any other diesel
All I can say is sell it JWEBB!  At 150k your time of good fortune is about complete buddy..  Not an opinion here but a fact.  Check out a Ford Diesel forum if ya have any questions about your future 6.0.  Auto trans?  Uh oh its time.  Turbo is tired now, uh oh.  Injectors, tubes and Inj pump, oh oh.  Might as well fix what Ford didn't do while your spending the cash.  Like head bolts that can handle the HP that Navstar/international did NOT DESIGN their engine to handle. Oh don't forget to egr delete so the toilet doesn't plug up and destroy itself!  Sorry but this is for your benefit not a loyalty thing.  I think the Superduty is a superior truck overall, minus the engine of course.

You do realize that all of us happy 6.0 owners are laughing at how upset non-6.0 owners get over happy 6.0 owners?  It's like some people can't help themselves but to pop a vein over other people's success with these rigs.

Look, if you don't want to change the oil in your rig on schedule, if you don't want to put a little extra effort into owning a fantastic truck with a higher-maintenace engine, then feel free to spend twice as much on a lower-quality-build used duramax or cummins truck.  Or just buy a gasser.

Keeping a 6.0 on the road is easy with some care, if not cheap at the beginning. Upgrades are easily paid for by the discount you get buying a 6.0 vs cummins.  And as mentioned before, most have already had the EGR cooler and oil cooler done by now, so there's one less thing for you non-6.0 owners to get all worked up over.

But we really appreciate your concern for us!   :chuckle:
