Re: how many miles on a 6.0 ????

I know of a few high mileage 6.0's anywhere from 250k on up to 500k

The 500k mile truck has had zero issues except for a ball joint replacement

Re: how many miles on a 6.0 ????

I only have 75,000 on my '05. I can't afford a new one while my kids drag racing so it needs to last at least 3 more years. Then he will be in college so there's 4 more years.

Re: how many miles on a 6.0 ????

The owner of hagerstown tire has a 2006 6.0 with 50,000 miles. The turbo, intercooler, 2 egr coolers, a oil cooler, a bunch of injectors and some miscellaneous sensors have all been replaced under warranty. It only tows occasionally and is bone stock.....

Re: how many miles on a 6.0 ????

1 more. A local contractor has a 2004 6.0 in a dumptruck (so it is worked hard). 60,000 miles, bone stock. Transmission, transfer case, two sets of head gaskets, a turbo, several egr coolers and lots of injectors have went bad, so far the only thing hes paid for is a starter though. I can give you a bunch more horror stories and im sure other members on here can too but there are a decent number of success stories too so idk..

The shirt would just chap the ole mans a$$ something fierce!!!!
