Personally, I'd fix the 6.0 with arp studs, because it's your truck and U know what U put it thru. But if it's between the 6.4 and certain d-max's, I'd choose d-max because the 6.4 is just to expensive to fix and the emmisions on it really handicaps the motor including bad fuel mileage.

You may want to consider the age of the newer trucks you are talking about. 2007 and newer may contain even more emissions stuff that we try to stay away from. I would fix the truck.

Problems with 6.4 also, stay with th 6.0L. Landscaper I know is getting rid of his Dmax's to many repairs. Bought two new 6.7's so far, know price is what after. Drove the 2011 all I can is wow dam fast for a dump truck.
Still I love sound of my 6.0L, 6.7's to quiet.

skip the 6.4 and go 6.7 if trading the truck in is a must.

x2. Fixing the 6.0 will be much cheaper though but the 6.7s are so bad azz

Why is that? Because of the dpf and exhaust stuff? Any other issues besides the emissions stuff? I can't do the delete because they require testing in my county.

I currently have a 06 KR with a 6.0 complete with ARP head studs, egr delete and all the goodies. I had a 6.4 2008 and loved it after I did DPF and EGR delete with SCT programmer and cold air intake. Tons of power and it got 17 around town and 21 on the hwy. Never had any problems with the 08 only sold it to get out of a payment. The 08 had 37's and would scream. The 06 is nice but the power sucks compared to the 6.4. Any of these trucks can have problems. They all have their own "characteristics". If you have the cash to get something newer, why not.

6.4 would be a major down grade. 90% of the 6.4's i see that come in with a CEL ends up needing a HPFP
