The LCF came with a 4.5 engine manufactured by Navistar International and not by ford. There nothing like the 6.0 and usually a lot more dependable. The biggest complaint about them was the engines are noisy and the fuel consumption was pretty poor, Ford stopped selling them in 2006 because they where never a good seller and finding someone to work on then was a major pain as well. If you can do without this one I would sure consider not making this purchase. Parts are hard to come buy as well.
