Default 04-06 f250 diesel truck

I'm looking at buying a 2004-2006 diesel f250. Could y'all give me some pointers on what to look out for with these engines?

I own a shop and the 6.0 can be difficult and expensive to repair. First what is your budget? How many miles on the unit your looking at. Is it deleted and do you plan to delete it? What are you using it for? They can be good units and the can be a money pit. We have an 07 with 225k on it. Just had to put injectors in it and that was not fun. Bought 8 new ones, broke down 3 times before I told brand x to refund our money. 8 from Ford and no problems since. Just understand if it has a breakdown its not easy or cheap to repair.

Search this sight for 6.0 blues. No matter how good someone says their 6.0 is, it just hasn't happened yet. Let me assure you it will. Took two different trucks doing same thing for me to learn. Last fix cost $12,000 to fix.

Heads, head gaskets, oil coolers. The list goes on and on. And if they tell you it has been bullet proofed, still run.

Budget around 15000. Will deleting it help the engine? What should look for to make sure it's an Ok buy? In looking for one with around 200000 miles

There are plenty of good Dodge trucks out there. Seriously though, a few searches here and you will have plenty enough reasons to stay away from a 6.0 or 6.4 Ford.

So would you recommend the Ford. I'm guessing the majority would go with the 6.7 Cummins In a dodge?

If I was in your shoes, I'd look for either a 6.7 Ford/Cummins or 5.9 Cummins. People want too much for good 7.3s it seems, plus they're not really all that.

If you could get a nice gen 2 Dodge Ram, you would be set up for what you want. People won't let them go real cheap anymore though.

You either get a good one or a bad one. If you can go for an 05-07, the 03-04 are the first models and had a few more problems. Most people that talk crap about them only know what their brothers cousins uncles best friend told them and have no real experience with them. I've got an '05 that I've had since 2008 that is a dang good truck. Bone stock except for an intake and an exhaust and pulls my 30 ft trailer down the road with not a worry in the world. I bought a half ton when I paid it off so it only gets used when I need to pull now but to this day it has not left my stranded. My folks had an '06 that had 300K on it when it got stolen with very minor problems. Now a 6.4 is a different story, run very far. I've had experience with both and would take a broke 6.0 over a running 6.4 every day of them week.

I have a 2006 6.0, F350 Crew, 4X4 Lariat, just shy of 200k miles. I had to bullet-proof it about 50k ago. Yep expensive, both the purchase, routine maintenance and the bullet-proof ($5k). But- pulls our travel trailer very well and other than 3 times never let me down. Not many large trucks can meet what it has provided me. 18MPG highway, 15MPG mixed driving. Considering what is has done, I'm happy.

Yes sir! Mine is an '05 2Fitty short bed 4x4 Lariat. It just turned 125K so just getting broken in and I have absolutely no complaints. Like I said it's not my daily driver anymore but pulls my TT a handful of times a year plus my tractor and gooseneck whenever I need to. Not bulletproofed yet, and not planning on doing it until it needs it, but I'll have the money sitting aside for when it does. It never fails that every time we go camping there are always several 6.0s in use around the place!


To the OP, you can still find them for pretty good deals. My advice is find a diesel shop around you and if you find one you like take it by and have it looked over good by someone that knows 6.0s!

Buy a gas truck, for no more than you will do with it, it ain't worth it. Late 03-06 fords are like playing Russian roulette. 7.3 are priced higher than gold and the 6.4 wasn't much better than the 6.blow. And like already mentioned, 5.9 or 6.7 cummins but you will pay a premium for those too. My stepdad just payed 25k for an 06 Ram with 85k miles.

If you don't need a diesel but every now and then, why pay the higher maintenance costs or future repair bills (6.0 )

If you buy a F250 in that year range you need to pay to get it bulletproofed. If you aren't going to be able to do that then you need to run as fast as you can.

Owned an 03 F250 king ranch, paid for it twice in repairs. Wouldn't take another one period.
Even if fixing it isn't the issue, being broke down or stranded sucks.

Just saying with ROUTINE maintenance and NOT I say again DONT put a box on it they will be a great truck. I have a 06 250 lariat four wheel crew that pulls my forty foot triple slide fifth wheel just fine. 15.5 on hwy and 11 pulling. I swapped the egr cooler and oil cooler both with bullet proof brand parts only because I wanted to keep from having any issues. Haven't done anything else to it but filters and oil. Mostly you will here a bunch crap and negative but it's really all how you treat any of them. Good luck in your decision

I had 361k on my 02-7.3 when I traded for a 2014 6.7 and that 6.7 would pull circles around my 7.3. Delete it and it's even more of a beast.

Treated mine with kids gloves on timely maintenance and it still cost me $12,000 in repairs so don't tell me if you do your regular scheduled maintenance and did not mod it or treat it by doggin it everytime I got in it it will last forever. That is total BS. It is a crap shoot on if a 6.0 will last or crater.

I was meticulous on the maintenance on my 2011 Ford 6.7 diesel and the motor went out at 114,000. $6700.00 for new short block and parts and it needed the turbo replaced because it had a slight knock, $2700 for that. It went straight to dealership from repair shop and will be someone else's headache.

This right here! I had an '08 6.7 Cummins work truck for a while. It was a great running truck until it got up close to 200K, then you couldn't hear the radio over the rattlers. I guess I'm a "Ford Fan Boy"... but in my opinion Dodges aren't worth the trouble.

With that budget. I would try and find an older duramax. The 7.3 ... lol.. weak as branch water. Yeah they were dependable.... but you just couldn't go nowhere very fast with them. 6.0-6.4 no good. A dodge in that budget will be falling apart around that cummins.... And you cant afford any 6.7 with your budget.
