Perhaps you just got "that truck". I had a Dodge Dakota that was $200 every other week consitantly to keep it going.
There's always the 7.3, but I assume you're looking for a newer truck.
IMO avoid change over years, IE the first year of a new motor. That way if you give it a year or two generally the kinks are worked out of the new designs, and they are done mish moshing new and old parts to get them off the shelf, example: the 99 trucks.. Just food for thought., my truck is a 99 and is this way.
I have driven a dually v10 f350 and man would I NEVER buy one with that motor, thing sucks gas just looking at it. Gets 6-8 mpgs consitently, mostly highway. Just my experience. I'll never go back to gas.
