F250 vs Excursion

Mod/Admin, if there's a more appropriate section for this post, please move it.

So, I have the opportunity to possibly trade my F250 for an Excursion and some cash and I'm on the fence, back and forth.

Details:

2000 Ford F250 4x4 7.3L Diesel - 296k miles, Tymar, Stage 1 single shot injectors, DP Tuner F5 chip, boost bypass valve, Factory Tech Valve Body, '07 front conversion, SAT/NAV aftermarket stereo system, Lariat leather interior, triple gauge pod w/boost, tran, EGT, 6" lift, 37x12.50x17 ProComp eXtreme A/T's on Moto Metal wheels.





2000 Ford Excursion Limited 7.3L Diesel - 210k miles, Tymar, DP Tuner tuned ECM, '07 front conversion, SAT/NAV aftermarket stereo system, leather interior, 2wd, some brand of 22" wheels/tires.






The Excursion belonged to a buddy of mine who sold it a year or so ago to the guy who has it now, so I know the vehicle's history for the most part. Over all, both vehicles are in comparable condition. The trade if done would be the Excursion and $2,000 for the F250.

I'm interested to hear opinions as it may bring up points I hadn't considered?

Realistically, I don't ever need more interior room than my crewcab truck has (single, no kids), so that's not a point for either option. I don't "need" a 4wd, but it's nice to have at times. I do tow on occasion (boat, car trailer, etc) which either will do fine. The Ex rides nicer, is more comfortable, gets better fuel mileage, and although carries many similarities to the F250, would be something new (to me). The F250 is the longest I've ever kept a vehicle without getting something different so I'm kind of itching. If I ever needed the usage of a truck if I did the trade, my buddy (who owned the Ex previously) has a F350 I could borrow anytime. But, I love the F250 and would hate to see it go. It definitely sticks out more than the Ex (just another SUV with nice wheels to most) and I'm not so sure I've grown up/grown out of that phase where I don't want to blend into all the other traffic. Haha.

I had a 2001 Excursion with the 7.3. Great truck. I traded it for a 09 6.4 crew cab. has less than 7,000 miles on it, and the EGR coolers are being replaced. I am beginning to think, I should have kept the '01.

For me it would come down to interior space vs. 4wd. I need the 4wd.

For me I would keep the truck. As it is 4wd and to me looks way better. Also nice to have the things and not need them, then to need them and not have them. Now if the EX was 4x4 than be iffy. Yet I like lifted trucks and standing out in a crowd! Good way of course.
