Just curious to the average age of a 6.0 diesel owner. Knowing that they are not cheap rigs to own and all the maintenance required to keep them running... we seem to get better toys as we get older, boats, trailers and toy haulers.... and gain more experience as we go, what's your age?
52 years of age now, got carded buying beer a couple months ago (very sweet girl )
53next month. Got my '06 in 2011 when I was just a pup (49) .
Wife says I turned into a grouchy old fart just this spring, but I'm getting used to it. (Maybe it's low T? Lol)

67 today and do all my own maint. and repairs unless still under warranty. Even have a two post lift in the workshop so I can walk, instead of crawl, under it and the other vehicles. Got to admit when I screw up I do bleed more and longer than 10 years ago.
Well I hate to admit it, but things hurt that I never knew I had I'm 55 and this is my second 6.0 and have never looked back in regret. I'm ready to go through a midlife change so I think I'm gonna see what it does at the Diesel Nationals at Raceway Park in Englishtown N.J.If it breaks ,it breaks.........I'll rebuild it better!
