Welcome to the org!

I drive an 02 but last week my dad bought the 6.7. Let me tell you that that thing is a beast! I love it. I drove it 150 miles so far. I am leaving in it friday and going on a 4k mile road trip. Compared to driving it with a 6.4 it drives so much better and has a lot more power. I know its new but it seems like ford has done its research on this engine and it should be awesome. I know dad wont put a tuner on it until after the warranty is up. I know I will pull 15k with it being a 350 SRW CCSB

Go with the 6.4 for now, wait a couple years until the 6.7 is proven before biting that bullet. You can find new 6.4 for 15 to 20k less then a new loaded 6.7. Drop an extra 2 grand on a Spartan, and the 6.7 stock won't hold a candle to it.

I just bought a 2010 F-350 CC SBW with the 6.4l after driving the 2011 and the new 6.7 PSD.
It is a remarkable engine and I will buy one in a couple years after they get some miles on them.
For the money I saved and the general reviews of the 6.4 I believe it is one the best motors on the market hands down and even though it has some quirks (like all the rest) you really can't go wrong in my opinion.
For the record it is my opinion the in 5 years the 6.4 will be the most sought after diesel on the market. They over built this motor to suych an extent in my opinion that with proper tuning and upgrades it will be a complete animal

For me the 6.4 has plenty of power and with rebates, X-plan and trade in I got my 2010 King Ranch for 43,000, so they are trying to move the 6.4's. What really made my mind up was looks more than anything. Don't like badging and why did Ford tack on those fender flares, really messed with the look of the truck. And I have never seen that much chrome on the front end of a truck.

agreed, i dislike chrome, it looks tacky in excess. I picked up an 08 for a heck of a price. The 6.4 is the way to go in my opinion.
