Trade or mod?

I have a 03 F250 With 85000 Miles on it. I have had no trouble at all out of it. I went by the dealership and there is a local trade 04 F350 62000 Miles. The truck has some kind of edge chip and a 2 year 24,000 Mile warranty on it. They want 25,995. I am getting ready to go see what they will give me on trade for my truck in just a couple minutes.

On the other hand i was thinking that i could just save some money and just get an sct for my truck. And if it would blow head gaskets i could get it studded with the money saved. What do you guys think. The warranty would be nice. If i do go with an sct who has the best tunes? And how long do you think my gaskets will last after installing the programmer. Thanks

Why would you do that. It's basically the same truck. I might see it for an 05-07 but not an 04. Keep your truck and fix it up. EGR delete, ELC coolant, Edge Insight, SCT and tunes. Eric at Innovative Diesel and Matt at Gearhead Automotive Performance both write nice tunes. There are others of course.

Yeah, I wouldn't trade that truck for the '04 even if they paid me. Especially after the Edge.

Eric is at Innovative Diesel Performance, Matt is at Gearhead Automotive Performance. A quick google search will turn them both up.
