I recently bought a 2006 F450 Flatbed crew cab truck with 135K miles on it. It ran great until i sent a crew to Miami, Fl back in the summer.  The truck broke down on I-95 with a bad "turbo module".  $900 later we were back on the road.  In November i sent the same crew to Va. and the truck left them standed with a broken injector.  $2450 later the left side of the motor had new injectors and fuel rail.

My question is this...Should i dump this pig or keep it.  The truck runs great now and i am wondering whether to shed it due to more problems or is this a pretty good truck?

Due to my past expiriences with 6.0L, your going to have plenty of more injector problems and seal leaks. When I had my 6 liter excursion the turbo went out about 3 times and once it hit 90k I sold the baby and kept my 7.3l. Ide check out any of those or the 6.4l and 6.7l, they are both excellent! Hope this helped!
