Personally no way . Tell you this it ain’t worth much even clean and low miles. Heck if the man gave it to you he might need to throw in some cash lol. Again just say no.

I don't know why anybody would buy an old diesel. I couldn't wait to get rid of my 6.sl0w. My 6.2l gasser is faster, tows as good stock, gets about the same economy and is bullet proof in comparison.

Here's my advice (I'm a Chevy/Duramax guy but I'm not gonna be bias.)

Yes, the 6.0 is a bad mofo once it's bulletproofed, I know a few that have been over 300,000 miles.

But think of it this way.. Idk how much he's asking for the truck (gonna make up a number, lets say 9k.) You put $4000+ into it to bulletproof it, you're at 13k. The truck is already 17 years old.

For that 13k, you can get an already ready to go diesel that is solid (like the LBZ Duramax or 5.9 Cummins) and now go through all the shop work+ get a new truck.. That's my thought on it.

I have to be bias for a second here though.. I'd go with an LBZ or newer (2006-newer) Duramax over a Cummins.. The Cummins automatics are completely asstastic, the body is a POS. The only thing good on those trucks is what's under the hood. So I don't understand why one wouldnt opt for a well proven, reliable, and powerful LBZ Duramax, with a legendary automatic transmission (Allison), and a good solid chassis/body. You can call this bias all you want, but if with the year range you are looking for, the Duramax is going to be your best option for all around.

And yes, I have experience with the Cummins which is why I have my reasoning.. As we speak right here right now we have a 5.9 in our fleet that is in the shop right now getting a trans rebuild at 240,000 miles.. I helped my friend rebuild his in his 2nd gen 5.9 at 270k, and another Cummins guru friend of mind just had his 68RFE rebuilt in his 6.7 with 185,000 miles. And yes, they all have some rust, they all have cracked dashes.. Meanwhile, a hot shot truck in our fleet (2007 LBZ Duramax 3500) has 973,000 miles with the 100% original Allison transmission.

So you can call me bias all you want, I just believe what I see in person.

The red portions would be my disagreements. If the 6.0 is BULLET PROOFED, they are reliable, if not I wouldn't own one. The 6.2 tows as well as a diesel? Don't think so nope not gonna happen. Same fuel mileage? I doubt it, drive them similarly and see the difference.

That 6.0 you are looking at has had the 5th wheel hooked up for 51,000 miles. How it was cared for and driven would mean something to me. If you want to put the $$$ into it and rack up miles and have a legit use for it then go for it. If your not going to keep it long term and its just a fire it up and let the neighborhood hear it piece then id pass.

I don't have to speculate. I owned both.

6.0l 325HP 570lbs torque, 5 speed tranny
6.2l 385HP 430lbs torque, 6-speed tranny

I get the same city mileage out of the 6.2l gasser that I got out of the diesel after I tuned it. Towing does not translate into much difference in the real world based on my experience. A lot of the problem with the 6.0l, at least imo, was the transmission. The 6.0l constantly downshifted unless you locked it out of o/d which put it in 3rd gear and over it's peak torque rpms. You have more control and more gears with the newer truck, where you can manually lock out each gear. Now tune the diesel, and everything changes. I love Ford, but as far as engines go the 6.0l was my biggest disappointment next to the chevy 5.3l....or maybe the Ford 3v 5.4l.

My comments are all geared at comparing a deleted and tuned 6.0, I wouldn't own one otherwise.

I picked up a 6.0 that my buddies dad bought brand new. Had been bulletproofed when they had it, but no big tune on it. Is it as stout as my 6.7 powerstroke? No, but it has pulled that 6.7 to the shop twice for big repairs. Regularly pulls farm equipment, hay, and cattle trailer. Been a good truck. It isn't going to win any races, but I honestly wouldn't be scared to drive it across the country.
