you'll get mixed opinions. Most will say for reliability and raw towing power, get the 7.3. Others will say for mileage and speed get the 6.0

I love my 7.3, but often grow mad that 6.0's can so easily slap us around w/ minimal mods. Not that I've raced any 6.0's though

I honestly dont care my truck is a '99. My truck gets better mileage than most cars, or any suv/truck on the road, will last longer than a newer car, and has better resale than any lexus, bmw, mercedes etc. So age isn't an issue with me. Drive them both and decide. Thats the best I can say.
