    Does anyone know if the 05 f250s with the 6.0 diesel still have problems like they did in 03 or if they are/were fixed by then?


    Any help is VERY much appreciated

    I have an 06 and it seems pretty good could use a little more bottom end power. I had a 03 lemon and a 00 7.3 that was the best. I heard the 05 was pretty good also.

    05's are ok. My brother runs two of em and a buddy of mine has 60,000 on his. I have an 06 that has been good as well. But i did have one of the first 03's and that thing was JUNK
