    '03 or '04 both are fine. Just make sure the '03 has the Oct. reflash ['03 the last one!] This latest reflash eliminates the low RPM pilot injection and 99% of owner complaints. The downside to the reflash slightly elevated noise at idle. The motor/trans pkg is best in class for now....but look out for the new Duramax with the same VVT technology as the 6.0 PSD AND a 6 speed Allison auto, it will be a beast!

    I have a 2004 F350 dually 4x4 with the 6.0. Mine is NOW running excellent. I also have 2 Duramaxes, 1 with 140k, flawless, the other about 60k, no problems. As to the 6.0, if you go to you will find quite a few problems, but they have been for the most part fixed, and Im very happy with the 6.0/5 speed combo. I have an Edge module with an Attitude display, AFE proguard ram air filter and box, and a DPPI Turbo back exhaust, ran 14.13 @ 95.89 mph in a 1/4 mile. With the new Attitude display - 2.4, it will add 20-40 hp and 40-60 torque, hopefully get me into the high 13's, especially with this cold weather. Bottom line this Ford is quicker by about 1/2-3/4 seconds, over the Duramaxes with the same setup, which definatly helps when towing. If this Ford seems to hold up, I will retire the 2001 Duramax for another Ford, hope this helps. Jeff

    HMMMMM, I heard from several people that it was the Allison, so I did not second guess it. Still a great trans though

It too ran great, but it did have the cold start romp. The X diesel was a bit quieter then the F-350, but this is due to more sound deadening in the X then the F-350.

    Ahhhh, you got the itch for another Diesel huh? I wondered how long it would take you to get back into the PSD

    Have not driven a new 6.0 but sounds like it will be my next a few years of course.

    Our 03 6.0 X is being taken back by Ford under the Lemon Law. Many, Many problems with the motor, and the brakes as well.

    We ordered a new Chevy.

    our 03 excursion has been in the shop more than on the road. Bad injectors, computer problems, smoking, and had to replace the rear main seal!

    Have an 03 6.0 with about 4800 miles on it. Bought in mid August. Problems........NONE. Only problem you will find with this truck is it runs, and runs GOOD. The transmission on this truck is what makes it really shine. I've NEVER owned a Ford in my life before this truck. Been a GM man up until now. I don't have any regrets. Trust me, I never thought I would be saying that.

    This is a good article to read. Facts, nothing more.

    Below is a pic of mine.

    Good luck it's a great engine and truck. I have an 03 350 drw. 6.0 auto.4X4. So far so good. It pulls better than my 01 dodge cummins ever could.Very easy to service with the filters in canasters on top. Only trouble is a rough idle and the primary fuel filter is under the cab on the frame.
