6.0 - more power and better driveability than a 7.3, much better auto trans for towing and empty, tow/haul mode, quieter, and more power.
7.3 - better low end if 6spd, less chances of getting a problem child, louder, slightly better economy.
in my observations regarding 6.0s, very early '03s seem to be doing well. the '03.5s to mid '04s seemed to be more problematic. no stats to prove anything, just observations. i don't hear many have problems w/ '02 or early '03 build date 6.0s. i guess to be "safer" you would want to look at a late '04 and up. if still too pricey and are too skeered, get a 7.3.
me personnaly, my next truck would be a 7.3/6spd so i can put a cummins in (just because i miss rowing). [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif[/img]
