another 6.0 or a 6.4?

i have the itch to get a new truck depending on what i can get for mine on a trade in and cost for a new one

i love my 04 6.0 so im kind of leaning towards another 6.0 power is good and i love that 03 turbo whistle

if i get a 6.0 i think im going to try and get a larit this time around and 05 or newer for sure just want to update

but i found a 08 extended cab xlt (they have it listed as xl but the picture it cloth seats and carpeted floor so i assume it xlt) with 105,000 miles 4x4 auto for $18995 which sound like a deal to me, im i missing something ? would i be better to get a another 6.0? or 6.4, i think id rather have the xlt 6.4 vs a larit 6.0 just because the interior is just so much nicer in my opinion but cause you even work on a 6.4 by your self for say head gasket or egr delete? ive done a oil cooler and stuff to my 6.0 for reference

I would rather have a 6.0L myself, to me its the easier truck to work on. You already know the issues, and you've worked on them before. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another 6.0L given the chance.

If you are in an area where a delete of the DPF is out of the question, the 6.4L shouldn't be an option. The DPF is the core weakness of it, and every diesel that follows.

you think this is a good deal. 05 f-250 xlt crew cab 4x4 63000 miles for $20,995? it look like a nice truck and is right up the street but it has all of that chrome door handle and fuel door is crome as well and i hate that look not sure on the fuel tank but i think the rest you just peel off to the stock black plastic.

im hoping i could get about 15-16 for mine. which is a 04 f-250 xlt crew cab 4x4 with 98000 im proably wishing for to much but its a very clean truck.

ehh maybe asking a little to much for yours but the right buyer might go for it...as for the one that you are looking to buy I would say that is a pretty good deal...honestly though I would look for a little higher mileage one but that is already studded and "bulletproofed" (I hate that term...just bad karma ) for that same price... but anways just my $.02

Let me ask the OP something, what is motivating you to move to an '05+ truck?

For the money you'd need to spend on a newer equal-quality truck, you may be able to convert your '04 for the features you currently lack.

i like the 05+ coil over for turning radius and a little better ride. i need what seems like 100ft to do a u turn in a crew cab short bed . ive driven a 05 dually long beds that will out turn my truck

i like both front end alot better on the new trucks and the dash and inside better on both the 05-07 and the 6.4

I see, weigh your options. There are a number of threads here conducting the coil-over conversion onto the '99-'04 Superduty.

Make sure you take a monitor to look at any 6.0L that fits what you are looking for. Avoid buying a someone's problem truck.

Understand ,I am in the process of collecting parts to convert mine to coil spring.
