Another 6.0 bites the dust



Lindsay's Dad's truck. 2005 6.0. Hauling 5K lbs of tile from Lakeland to Vero Beach. Popped the EGR cooler in Lake Wales yesterday about lunch time. Good thing they only had two pallets on the trailer. It barely fit. GN is 24' overall. Truck has just over 100,000 miles on it. This is the first problem he has had with it. Going to put a RCD Delete Kit on it.

This was a buddy's truck couple weeks ago. Got towed in from Orlando, IIRC. EGR cooler too. 200K miles before his trouble. Not bad at all. Put a RCD Kit on this one too.

My 6.0 ran great for the first 96,000 miles. At that point the FICM gave out. At 98,000 I blew a head gasket. At 106,000 I had a complete top end bulletproofing done. A week later the thermostat stuck open. Today it's going in for a radiator leak in the top tank.
