Isn't the 6L most known as the engine that blows up?
From what i have herd, they drop cranks fairly easily.

Ah, I C.
but i've noticed that alot of the newwer Ford 6L that we have in our work vans cause us nothing but trouble.
I think i'd go with the 7.4L (or is it 7.2) diesel if i were to choose. then again if the price was right...

no the 6.0 is a good motor there was a few little issues in late 03 when they came out but those are all good now

its 7.3
