    Don't listen to all that non-sense^^^

    6.0's are just as reliable as a duramax or cummins if you take care of them.

    I would put the value at $11kish area. What is the asking price?

    It's not IF the 6.0 will lay down on you its WHEN. That one is about ready for injectors and has likely had at least an EGR cooler and HPOP. My brother left here a few weeks ago with his 04 6.0 headed for Florida. He had and injector replace the week before. Got 70 miles down the road and lost another. Had the other 7 replaced at a cost of $2700. Truck has 97,000 and had been BABIED it's whole life. Here's something for you to do. Book a 03 7.3 and an 03 6.0 on KBB. The 6.0 CONSISTENTLY books for $2500 - $3000 less EVERY TIME!

    I have had 2 6.0's both with over 150k on them with no problems at all. And $2700 for injectors:hammerhead:? Holy shiz. I can swap injectors by myelf in 4 hours. EGR 3 hours.

    You must have got the only 2 good ones. I know of NOBODY with an 03 or 04 that has been problem free, My 03 had over $12,000 in warranty work. As far as injectors in 4 hours i call BS. MAYBE the drivers side bank in four hours but not both sides. One of my good friends was the 1st PSD tech in the state of Montana in 1994 and is DAMN good working on them. Takes him 6 hours to swap out a set. Also 6.0 Injectors are $230-$250 each to buy them VS $130 each for my 95 7.3.....
