No ford doesn't own cummins you can get cummins engine in class 6 trucks, as well as a cat motor. yes navistar counter sued and lost........and yes if your not carefull a 5.4 engine will puuuck its spark plugs........if u can a descent truck that has a good warranty then buy it, as soon as warranty is over get rid of it, u will be paying top dollar to fix it. I am only speaking from experience i know many here own 6.0's....................im sorry..... few of the bugs in that engine were redesigned by 07 model year, not all of them.
i agree to an extent on what i hi-lighted, the later frpp head for the 5.4 does not do that

the 5.4 are weak motor but the trans are geared extreamly low and with a 4.10 or lower rear you will be towing for many years. gvw is the key
