Yes it will work on all yr model 6.0's, but it needs to be vin unlocked. They usually have 5 unlocks per tuner, which means it can't be used more than 5 times between different trucks before the tuner goes into the lock mode. If it still has available vin unlocks, then you will be ok, but highley recommend custom tuning for it for your truck and strategy. If the tuner already has custom tuning programmed for your buddies truck strategy, then its not going to work unless your strategies are the same, which is very unlikely. If the tuner has canned general programming, then it should work as is, but is far from a custom tune program.
