Yeah those 7.3's were strong motors. 6.0's..... Not so much. Didn't the like 02-06 6.0's have a recall because of head gasket issues? I think so.. I have not heard about the new 6.8 power strokes.. All I know is they sound like gas trucks they are so quiet.

Nice! So all the trucks you were talking about are your company trucks?

They do have a problem with plugs but a good truck anyways

That's what I'm doing in SC right now. My bro is coowner of the business, so all we have is F150's and 250's. I have a 7.3, he drives a 7.3 and right now we're looking for another 7.3... He wants crew cab, 4x4... And a manual trans... Not an easy truck to find.
