I have owned both, and in the construction industry I talk to owners of both.
For trouble free miles 7.3 hands down, it pains me to say that, I have a 6.0 now. The 7.3 is a less refined engine, but it just keeps making noise and working. I have seen several with between 300,000 and 400,000 miles with no major problems (clutches, and a turbo here and there).
My 6.0 has had a HPFP (sound familiar around here?) problem, and a turbo rebuild and a bunch of sh*t that goes with both of those things, at under 50,000 miles estimate was $5,200 for the repairs but the fleet guy was good to my and it only cost $3,800.
