I think I would put it this way.The 6.0L is like a wife.
You take care of her or she will cost you a lot of money.

Be willing to learn to work on it and we can help with you
with info on what to do before minor problems become the
bank killing issues that can come up.

It's like a bad toenail. Yes it can hurt to have the Dr fix it early.
But if you wait it can get really bad and cost you the foot.

You're right there - high maintenance, but worth every cent when it's (she's) going well. It was actually the same decision cycle for both in my case. With the wife. I was in the middle of a really nasty divorce when I met her, the sort that puts you off remarrying, took 5 years, but I reckoned she was the one and I wasn't going to let her go. With the truck I read up about the 6.0 for about a month and pulled the trigger as it was just what we wanted and I wasn't about to to regret not buying it.

There are some factories I drive past often, but the smell still gets me thinking there's something wrong with the truck. You miss something and it will cost you big. Mind you, it might cost you big anyway, so make there is some reserve...
