    I would stay away from the 6 leaker I mean 6.0 liter. I'm a ford guy but won't even look at diesel ford trucks made between the years 2003-2010. The 6.0 and 6.4 navistar motors are the reason why ford is making their own diesel motors.
    The 6.0 has a problem mainly with the EGTs (exhaust gas temps) so if you run the truck hard your going to have problems with the motor.
    I would look for a truck with a duramax diesel or 7.3 diesel.

    As long as your deltas isnt too far apart and the rest of it checks out it including the Oasis report it should be good. You used to have a 6.4L if I remember correctly so describing all the 6oh problems would be repetitive. Also double check to see if there is a lot of rust in the utility body.

    Edit: If it was a company service truck, who knows what was done to it. Lots of idle time? Wetstacking turbo? You know the ususal stuff.
