I would go with the 6.4 but maybe not that one. The 6.0's have all sorts of problems with them. My brother has one and he regrets it. The price for that truck is kinda high for me. The 6.4 does have a few simple problems but the miles that truck has on it im sure they have all ready been delt with. Have a ford dealership run a OASIS report on the truck and that will give you the background of the truck for the most part.

Send a message via Yahoo to tracksoup
I paid 31.4K for my '03 in '04 with only 19,000 miles. But I was curious about the problems of the 6.0 because mine has 120K on it now and I haven't had a problem one with it.
