    Looks like a texas truck with those heavy bumpers. With the was prices are going I'd stay away from a diesel. I'm actually looking at a gasser to replace my diesel right now.

    Check out www.fordtrucks.com/forums for more info. I'd stay away from the 03 and 04 6.0 engines though... to many problems with head gaskets, exhaust manifolds and other egr problems.

    Look around, it is over priced. I wouldnt take a chance on a 03-04 6.0 either way. Also get an Oasis report from the dealer, if someone had a chip or box on the truck then what warranty is left will be voided. 03 and 04 6.0s around here have a really low resale.

    The 6.0 is a HORRID engine, run away as fast as you can. It was even nicknamed the "SICKO", because it was always in the shop. Get yourself an F250 with the 7.3L Powerstroke Diesel. It is MUCH better and will last you many years, and if you take care of it will last 500,000 miles. Plus it gets alot better fuel mileage, as high as 23 mpg.
