no more 6.0
By not happy on
2007 Ford F-350 Super Duty XL 2dr Regular Cab LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)
I bought this truck with the dealer knowing of my intent to use it commercially. I put 7,333 miles on it in 3 weeks with it loaded with 15-16K everyday. In the 7,333 miles the truck overheated 3 times and when returned to Ford, they found that it had a blown head gasket (a known problem with the 6.0 that i was not made aware of at time of purchase). So now I am sitting at home instead of making money with a $56,000 truck in the shop after only being used for 3 weeks. So in my opinion do not go with 6.0, i think they need to change the name from powerstroke to powerjoke! I want my Cummins back with 190,000 miles on it with no trouble at all.
The ride and comfort of the truck are what is expected of Ford, rugged but yet comfortable enough to ride in 12 hours at a time.
The right move was to dump the 6.0 diesel after only 4 short years of production, but the new 6.4 is untested in the real world and the twin turbo set up scares me to death.
