Trade in?

I recently picked up a 2004 6.0 for a very good deal so now I have two powerstrokes my first a 2000 7.3 that has been in the family since she was built, so now I have been wondering if I should trade them both in and pick up a 2005-2007 or not? What do y'all think keep two trucks or upgrade for one?

Depends on what you wanna do with them. Are you looking for power? Power/reliability? You could trade both for a 06/07 and put some money toward bulletproofing it. Or if you want a lot of power for little money you could trade up to a 6.4. I love mine but i put a ishtload of money into it to get it where it is.

Yeah, i hear you there. From everything i've gathered the later built 08's and up are the way to go. They still have problems like the 6.0 but they can be fixed as well. Like i said, depends what you wanna do with it. I would love to own both.

If you are happy with the '04, and you're not looking to tow heavily (which is the core changes on the '05-'07 trucks). I'd say keep what you have, and be happy with them. I really enjoy my '07, and yes the 6.0L has its faults but at the end of the day, it makes all the power I need, can haul just about anything expected of a truck, and I can maintain all emissions control hardware on board and not have an issue with fuel deluding the oil as the 6.4 does.

IMO, I think you have that backwards. I would personally tow with the 7.3 and make the 6.0 a toy, more fun to be had with the 04'

You make a valid point I was basing towing off of pure power from the 6.0 but I suppose I can make it much faster than my 7.3

Nothing wrong with two trucks if you like them both.

Twice the insurance, twice the maintenance. Get rid of them and get an 05-07 and work it. Much nicer truck than the earlier SD's, easier to maintain than a 6.4 and for sure the 6.7. Can be made reliable and fast for daily driving and detune for towing. I love the 6.0.
