f450/6.0 powerstroke

Im looking for more thoughts/opinions on you guys that run these motors. We currently have an older model NPR gasser that has run its course and needs to be replaced. I've never run a diesel but I have a chance to pick up an 05' f450 with 120k from a local construction company. I've searched through threads on here and a couple of the diesel power forums, but am still up in the air on my decision . I am finding people saying these motors can be made bullet proof with a little bit of work done to them, while other veteran powerstroke owners say they would never own one. The construction company has kept fairly good records and it seems to me like many of the "problem" items with these engines have been replaced on this rig:
Egr cooler- 2012
EEC- 2011

Any help or experience with these motors would be greatly appreciated thanks guys!
