Just interested in knowing the how many miles you've put on your 6.0's and what problems you've had during the life of your vehicle. I own an 05 6.0 excursion w/ 31,000 and have not had any problems to date

I have an 06 with 32,000
at 6,000 mile the first turbo went at 29,000 the 2nd turbo went!
Have changed the EGR valve and changed the exaust back presure sensor 2X
Changed the driver side mirror once because it shorted out!

Also had to get the truck repainted as soon as I got is as it had speckles of another color under the clear coat!

2003. Ran edge juice w/ attitude since 36k then switched to SCT2 from Elite at 55k. Only issue was a bad tranny at 35k, I bought the truck with 34k, the truck was fixed under warrentee and out of the shop in under a day. Never had a single problem since and I'm now at 77k, and I'm no easy driver.

I have a 2004 with 61,000 miles on it. I've only had 2 problems, the fuel gelled once because of bad fuel (I now constantly run powerservice) and the EGR plugged at 33,000 miles. Other than that it has ran great, I'm am not afraid to use my truck either.
