2003, F-350, 4x4, with the 6.0l turbo diesel?
4 door crew cab, lariat trim with leather, loaded (or nearly so),

2 owners,
current owner has had for 2.5 years, and ~40k of the ~125k miles.
no problems reported.

asking $17k negotiable.
selling because they are downsizing their horse-related endeavors.

here's the fly in the ointment:
a buddy with an 2008 or 2009 F-250 King Ranch, and a handful of intake, exhaust, and tune mods.
(so i guess he knows what he is talking about), says :
Avoid the 6.0L like it has Ebola virus! It went into 2003 through 2007 models. The 7.3L was before that. The 7.3 was a great engine. The 6.0 makes for a pretty good boat anchor. The 2008 - 2010 6.4L is the best so far.

current owner's wife, says that they researched it, and learned that if teh engine was gonna be a lemon, it would have declared itself before the ~80k mile mark, at which they purchased it.

so shouuld i keep considering this vehicle, or move on to something a year older, an 08 or newer, or a dodge?
