Definitely. Try to find a 3/450 in good shape with the 7.3 diesel. Goooood luck! That 6.0 diesel will bankrupt you.

Any diesel if the proper maintenance was not done it will bankrupt you. 6.0 can be reliable. The 7.3 that everyone said was the best motor can cost a lot in upkeep your now talking a 11 year old truck.

have you owned a 6.0. i owned one an d had 150k miles on it.The problem here is when you enter the diesel world your steeping up to the big games where fuel cost more repairs cost more. this is from http://www.internationalpowerstroke....troke-faq.html

If you want a diesel that can run flawlessly without proper maintenance at the recommended intervals, then the 6.0L is probally not for you. The 6.0L Power Stroke is very sensitive to neglect, and owners who extend the service intervals of their engine are the most likely to experience problems. If you are prepared to stay current on the engines maintenance, there is no reason to avoid the 6.0L Power Stroke. If you are in the market to "hot rod" your diesel, the 6.0L can be adequately equipped to handle massive performance levels with a set of performance head studs and an upgraded EGR system.

WITH ANY DIESEL PROPER MAINTENANCE IS THE KEY.

I've called 3 branches near me a while back when I noticed they were rolling around in new models and they don't have a clue. Some say they send them to other branches. But of course somebody has figured it out bc they are always for sale on ebay.

Saw a trailer load of new 450 Brickman truck on 695 last week. They all had the V 10 in them. There was a guy in southern PA who used to end up with alot of thier trucks and trailers.
