Not a bad price on the truck though, would go for probably double up here if not more if it had 4x4.
No it doesn't.

I've done a few dozen.

Yeah you can but don't have to. A lot of people do because they're lazy

But I can have it apart before they get the cab off lol. The only reason they do is because the passenger side rear two bolts. We just split the ac box in half

I have 238k miles on my 06 F350. Completely stock except for a coolant filter. I have a scangauge II hooked up to it and monitor the delta between the oil and water temps. It still runs like a top. I use it on nearly a daily basis pulling my lawn equipment and for plowing in the winter. For every 6.0 with problems there is one that has no problems. You never read about the ones that run like they were designed to.
