Boo 6.0!?!?! After all the kincks were worked out they became the best diesels out there... even better than the old 7.3s Come on man get some facts! 6.0s are amazing diesels and very relieable.

They're fine after you get rid of the EGR, and no they're not the best diesel out there.

ive used both the 7.3 and 6.0, granted the 7.3 was a 450 dump and the 6.0 was a supercrew 250, but both planted my *** in the seat. the 250 had more get up and go for obvious reasons and both and no problems towing a skid steer.

Who's to say that's not the intended purpose of that truck? To be an old mans grocery getter? Different strokes for different folks. Some people want a diesel because they want one. They don't have to use them to haul stuff 24/7.

so it couldnt be that i like the reliability and longevity of a diesel? why do i have to become a contractor and move tons of dirt and rock once i buy a truck with a diesel? what if i use the bed once a month for stuff that is either to big for something with a cover or to dirty for an SUV? not to mention all the extra weight and poor visibility.

I know a guy with a touneaue (sp?) on his F250 Diesel and he uses it to pull his race trailer? Guess he does not use it as the needed purpose.

Just because its a diesel does not mean it needs a 5th wheel

I'd rock a tonneau on it. Nothing wrong with that at all.
