First truck

I have the choice between a 2005 Powerstroke single cab 4wd and a 2000 Powerstroke King Ranch crew cab 4wd with a 2006 front clip and a 2009 bed. First which one do you think would be better and how much tq does a stock 2000 7.3 have?

Ford didn't make a King Ranch in 2000. Asking which one is better is going to be swayed by whatever section of the forum you are in.

It's mostly Likely a lariat the 2000. Still nice interior. If unwant the 2005 put away an extra 4,000 or more to builtproof it if it hasn't been done yet. The 7.3 are slower but are a solid motor 400k plus with regular maintenance. But with a custom tuner on a 7.3 and supporting mods it is a little more power then a stock 6.0

6.0 are a great engine once fixed

Well its not originally a King Ranch but it has the 2005 interior (Tan King Ranch seats) It looks just like a 2005 on the inside. It has the 2005 guages, steering wheel, seats, dash, and he just put a King Ranch emblem on the out side fenders and tailgate.

Motors aside, take the extra room. You will love the 4doors. I will never own a truck without em.
