Yea the ranger needs some love, its all exterior work it needs. Runs great for the amount of miles it has on it.

So what if its a 4banger? That would be an awesome candidate for a turbo kit. You'd be getting 20+ mpg plus lifted and wheel all day long.

Yea its a 6.0, and as for maintenance I've had no problems. I'm taking it to have new head gaskets, head studs, egr delete and the oil cooler rebuilt!!!

the red and yellow make it look like some sort of wendy's hamburger-mobile. She needs a little TLC, thats for sure. Nice Powerstroke though!

It seems that once people do that to the 6.0's they're pretty bullet-proof. They're not my favorite engine (I'd take a 7.3 any day) but I think that the 6.0 got a bad rap as far as issues go.

Yea they do, the 6.0 is a great motor. Just early on it had its issues. After 04.5 they got most the problems worked out minus head gaskets

And even then, I know some people that have had 6.0s and never have a single issue with them. Luck of the draw I guess.
