08 OR 09, Opinions needed.

I am in the market for an F250. I was stuck on the 08 at first due to wanting a specific color that is only offered in 08..... until I came accross the sync in the 09's. Now... From looking online I am seeing that between 08 and 09 the prices are fairly close. I am wanting a King Ranch with navigation, trailer brake and sunroof. I wanted the Copper 08 but now I have been stuck on the white 09's. Is the sync system worth me giving up on the color that I really want? What other info can you give me to help me decide? This may sound like a crazy question but I being pulled on which to really go with. Any input is greatly appreciated.

The 08s seem to have the most problems especially with radiators. If you can get an 09 for a similar price I know I would get one any day over a 2008.

Have you found an 08 in that color? If you have it is rare. I do a lot of driving and have not. The white with matching grill and bumpers look real good.

The only problem i have had with mine is the radiator. I am sure any 08 has had it changed already. be sure to get a oais report on any used truck. There are still some 2010s on the lots that can be had at some good prices.

They are all over cars.com and autotrader for my area. I bet I viewed 6 of them online today.

My truck has the SYNC option in it and I love it. Took a 5 hour drive to Laredo this weekend and talk on the phone about 2.5 hours with out holding the phone. Very nice feature if you ask me. No more dealing with bluetooth hurting the ear
