get the truck if ya want, but i wouldnt mod the exhaust till you know what is proven to work and not keep the engine in regen mode. i think SCT has a tune out now for the new 6.4L, also i would do gauges before anything. JMO.

I would get a good used 06 or earlier truck for 30k or less and keep that other 15k in the bank, but that's just my opinion. Since you put a lot of miles on your trucks it will have no resale value and you will be in a bad situation unless you keep the truck till the wheels fall off. Now if saving a good chunk of money is not a concern, go for it.

. I'm not saying the 08 is bad, but it's not proven as of yet. As for mods you have to be very careful what you do if you want continued warranty support from ford

You can add 08 mirrors to 07 and earlier
Won't have the same grill, but instead of an XLT 08 you can get a fully loaded King Ranch 06 for less money. The best advice I could give you is TAKE YOUR TIME and SHOP AROUND. It's a big purchase, don't make a decision you'll regret.

I just went through this, I wanted a brand new pick em up truck. I decided on a new 07. The 08 has some problems with the engine, it's new, relatively, so I don't particularly trust it. I also got some decent rebates on an 07 walked out of there with a good deal I think. Anyways that's my two cents.
