Well it depends on your budget. If you can pull off buying a diesel then can you afford the maintenance?

Might be better off sticking with an econo-driver until you move up in budget.

I got my late 99 f250 7.3L for 6k and it only had 174k miles on it. Really good shape. I think you should just look around until you find yourself a good deal.

You wont want a 5.4 in a 3/4 ton. Zero power

And you will get 7 mpg with the v10. If you can swing it get the diesel. If you cant now. Save till you can

And are disproportionally thirsty for the power they have.
