2010 6.4 6speed

I have been lookin to trade my 07 mustang v6 in on a new truck. Today i found a 2010 F250 XL super cab 4x4 manual trans with a wopping 15 miles on it. sticker price $43,xxx, the rebates and special event sale dropped it down to $31,288+TTL. My question is... do you think they will come down more? Im goin in the morning to work a deal so if anyone has any advise or tips for buyin this bad boy I would be very greatfull to hear them. I really hope im making a good buy. I think i am. im a 7.3 guy so this is a new road for me. any help is appreciated. Thanks guys and gals.

I am not sure how much better you're going to get for a deal, but that sounds like a pretty badass rig.

Manual trucks are real hard to come by, I was going to order one special when I bought mine, but I woulda had to wait like 8 weeks for it to be built, plus however long it would take to ship it to just about Alaska, so I figured I'd jump in one they had on the lot.

I got quite a bit off on mine, but at the same time, I work for the dealership, so I imagine I got a little better slice than most would have.

It's an XL... does it have the XLT appearance package with the nicer headlamps? Or does it have the ugly sealed beam lamps?

As for advice? See if you can get 'em to throw some **** in with the deal... bedliner, undercoating, extended warranty, etc.

Find out what it's worth, but if you're willing to spend it, I'd buy the following:

Diesel Care Ulitmate w/FMPP (oil changes, fuel filters, tire rotations, all the maintenance **** all covered)
Premium Care Warranty (covers pretty near EVERYTHING on the truck, to pretty much however much mileage you are willing to pay for)

Also see if you can get a tire/rim warranty depending on what kinda wheels/tires are on it, rims and tires can be real expensive if you were to clobber a pot hole or curb or something, most times it's covered, I think. I'm not a hundred percent sure on how the tire/wheel warranty works, so check on that for sure.

See how much of a deal they can do on the warranty, they aren't real cheap if memory serves me rightly.

Thanks for the info, I will for sure have to check on that. the truck has the XLT look. im not too crazy about the sealed beam lights. we have an 08 at work with them and they seem so primative, dim, and dont cover area well. I love the fact that this thing is stick. It kinda shocked me when i looked in the window and saw the shifter. Im leaving my house in an hour to go sign papers(I hope)

I'm glad I didn't get a stick truck.

I hammered up my back real real bad, and I'd have a hell of a time dummying a clutch pedal, so the automatic worked out in my favor, this time.

My dad has a 6.4 6-speed work truck.

Just had to take it in because one of the bolts holding the shifter in didn't get thread locker put on it allowing it to back out.

If you get the truck, you might want to raise the boot and check all the bolts.

His has 20K miles so far and it's an AWESOME truck. The hand shaker is definately a great option!

You gotta upgrade the clutch to put any sort of tunes to it. My buddy had the 210 in his, and the stock clutch slipped at WOT.

I put a South Bend clutch in it for him at the shop, it holds the power, but it's kinda clunky to drive, but as I said before, I got a ****ed up back, which makes my leg not work worth a ****, he seems to like it. He got used to it.

My stock clutch slips at WOT with the 125 tune. The 210 tune on manual trucks is a total dog, Spartan's working on it I guess. Mick told me to try the 125 tune and it was unbelievably better. I'll run that until I get my SBC.
