6.0 or 6.7?!

I currently have a 6L with106k on it. I'm in need of some I injectors soon so I was wonder if I should sell it and get a 6.7. If I keep this I'd want to do the bulletproof kit but i don't know if I want to spend all that money, I'm thinking payments on a new one with no miles and a warranty might be a better idea. What do you guys think. Thanks!

If the 6.0 is paid for I would keep it. I want a 6.7 but I don't want $900 a month plus insurance. Ill be keeping my 6.0, title in hand.

Only problem with the 6.7 is you gotta look at it...otherwise its a better truck in pretty much every way.

Well, I owned a 97 F150 for a few years - the swoopy body style. That ugliness is hard to see when you're driving it - and it was a great truck. That said, I will keep my 6.0 and $0 payment until at least after the election in case enough morons vote to jack up our taxes.

Payments are a bad option. Keep your 6.0. You're going to spend a few thousand to make your truck bullet proof now, or 50k to have a new truck. seems like a no brainer to me. Think what you could do with the money if you didn't have to make payments. And I'm not just talking about what you could do with your truck.

This...


Totally agree... I like the 6.7s. They drive great and I would like a dually... But, in all honesty the 8-900 a month payment makes me cringe. I'd rather get an Airstream trailer, go camping every month and spend the last 4-500 a month on booze and strippers...

Every one thinks their gen trucks are the best, it's only money they print more every day, and it's just a truck, if you can afford the payments comfortably and want anew truck go for it. The 11-13 trucks are miles ahead of even the 08-10 trucks and so forth. Paid off trucks are a nice thing however

I am not saying which one is better or worst. What i am saying is that the beat vehicle on earth is the one that you have the title to.

You are right that is is only money and they print more everyday, but who says that you are going to make any of the freshly printed money? With the state of uncertainty that the economy and the job market is in now, I would not finance a piece of bubble gum. When you sign that paper that says you have to pay $900 a month for 6 years, you better be absolutely certain that you will have a steady job for 6 years. I don't know anyone that can say that right now. Maybe truck drivers and that is it.

So. ~15k truck vs 60k truck, you can buy 4 of the 15k truck. $45,000 buys a lot of truck parts.
