That thing is pristine. Granted, lots of upgrades, and granted, SMB's hold their value. But $86K? Do you think he'll get it?

That seems pricy for a 6.0 that hasn't been bullettproofed. 78K miles is about 40K past the life span of the worst engine ford has ever made.

In all fairness to Ford they didn't make the 6.0 powerstroke.

From what I understand, Ford pushed it into production to keep up with the new Turbos with emissions etc. Navistar warned them about more than a few things and doing things it wasn't designed for. Then folks chipped them like crazy and took em back looking for warranty.

By 06 they were pretty dialed in. Damn good motor and trans combo if you treat it right. Mine has 120k on it with only one repair.

Agreed, have both the 7.3 and 6.0.
In three of our 6.0's they had 170k miles bone stock with no major failures when purchased before we tore down to "bulletproof" only as preventative measures. Love the 6.0 and great motor after the work is done.
But still wouldn't choose to own one that hasn't had the preventative stuff done.

Buying used is a gamble. Never know if they beat it, chipped it, didn't maintain it, etc. Mine was brand new and I don't pull with it and it get's a lot of kind highway miles and very little around town.

How long did your injectors last??
