Looking at buying two 6.0's

Looking at buying two fords right now and would like some opinions on them and price advice.

One is a 2004 F-350 crew cab SB XLT 4x4 with 192,000 miles on it, very clean and taken care of... rhino on the undercarriage... asking $15,995, for the wife..

The other is a 2006 F-250 crew cab SB King Ranch 4x4 with everything (nav, video system in back seats, pretty much everything) with 83,000 miles on it, asking $26,995, for me!

We have horses so we will both be doing a lot of towing with them. I'd like to know your thoughts on the both of them mainly the 04 and the reliability on the high mileage and also the 6.0L in general. I currently have a 5.9 cummins so i'm used to diesels. Thank you very much!

I would but unfortunatly it's too expensive for her and doesn't have the features i'd like.

That's what I'm getting into but it seems more proper care than my cummins was( fuel filter is basically it) I'm new to the whole egr system and that seems to be an issue a lot of people run into. What other kinds of things need to be "maintained"

The report shows previous warranty work done to the vehicle. Take the vin numbers to your Ford dealer and ask them for the full OASIS report for them.

To me they look good. I live in Pittsburgh so anything nice (not a work truck or eaten by salt) is expensive. I had to drive to MD to get a clean truck.
