Best diesel I've had out of 8 owned

I was hesitant after reading the far overblown slamming of the 6.0 PSD on the internet. After 4 years of ownership, I'm convinced most of the bad reviews for this year truck must have been made by owners of competing trucks. This truck drives great, has plenty of power, and has hauled waaaaay over it's rated towing weight for almost 200,000 miles. Had one oil leak fixed under warranty at 23k, but that's it. I like it far better than any 7.3 PSD I ever owned. Besides, I don't think there is a single 7.3 PSD still in existence that doesn't pour oil out the bottom. Great truck with the best interior and ride as well.

I raise and train horses and bought this truck to haul my 4 horse gooseneck. I live in Colorado and travel lots of high altitude roads so the turbocharger was a must have in a replacement truck. This Ford produces plenty of power and the tow/haul feature works great on the long downgrades. The ride is very car-like and comfortable. If you're going to tow I'd recommend the dual rear wheels for added flotation and stability and the crew cab/short bed. I owned a long bed and parking it anywhere outside a pasture was a real pain. Gas mileage is not its strong point, but you don't own a truck like this for fuel economy.

Good Tuck for the Money

by from MA on April 16, 2007

Very good Truck for the Money. Rides nice for a large vehicle. Just wish came with better tires for winter driving. Would buy this Truck again. Like the Diesel due to the MPG.

Outstanding Camper Truck

I purchased this truck from its original owner along with a Lance Camper. I have had no problems with it; it has plenty of power to carry one of the heaviest campers available. I have heard - and read about - the problems with the 6.0 engine but after four years of ownership have only needed to keep up with the scheduled maintenance. The local mechanic who takes care of this truck tells me he has seen some with problems at 85,000 miles and some with no problems at 150,000 miles so who knows if it's better or worse than other trucks.

Fantastic truck for towing + full size campers.

by from Southwest United States on March 12, 2013

Towed 17,000 lbs. in Nevada 130 degree desert no problem. AC still ice cold. Engine temp remained normal even during steep hills. All dealership maintenace so no problems. 10 year powertrain warranty transferable. Ford backs this truck if you do all scheduled maintenance. I've heard of the bad rapping of these trucks, but they always said they "did not have it serviced by the dealer or can not prove they maintained it". That voids the ten year warranty. Make sure you by from original owners with maintenace verified. You will be a happy camper!

Good truck for the money

by from Hickory NC on December 20, 2011

So far, So good. Rather concerned about the 6.0 diesel engine, but, the power and a little more info from my dealer have eased my concerns.

2011 I purchased a used 2006 f350 6.0, amarillo package. i was new to the diesel scene and only knew what i had read, i picked the 6.0 for many reasons, reasons like good turning, exellent towing, soild front axle, i liked the style, and i liked the bad rep the 6.0 had been given, it lowered the prices of the trucks and i was able to buy mine for 20,000$ flat all taxes included. after buying this investment, i upgraded the motor, and turbo, delete kits and turbos and heads. over all invested another 12,000$ into the truck, and have a lifted off road giant, now almost at 200,000. best truck ever.

The 6.0 powerstroke is a great all around truck. Has plenty of power tow and a very nice ride for being a 1 ton truck. Mine averages around 17 mpg stock which is impressive for its size. Interior is fairly basic on xlt and lariat trims but Harley Davidson, King Ranch and outlaw editions bring it up to a nice touch. They do require frequent oil changes as the oil has 3 jobs to do. 1) lubricate the engine 2) operate the fuel injection system 3) control the turbos vane geometry. The 2 fuel filters also need to be changed often. Once they become dirty, injectors won't get a full fill and causes premature wear to them. When owners neglect these you can quickly see how they received the reputation they have. Be proactive on your search. Get records from previous owners, bring the vehicle in for an inspection as well as paying to get the motor scanned and take a look at how the vehicle has been taken care of overall.
