Better deal?

In the market for a new used 6.4 powerstroke. Which sounds like a better deal a 2009 f-250 kr factory 20's, camera, burgundy/tan, 29000 miles certified for 38,500. Or a 2010 f-250 kr factory 20's, camera, sunroof, white/tan, 17000 miles for 41,500. Live in tx. Also the 2010 should have the 3.55 rear end compared to the 09 having a 3.73 correct? Thanks

When you compare age to mileage, the 2010 has the lower average annual mileage...and it's only $3000.00 more. Plus, the 2010 has a sunroof. As far as the rear end, sorry, I can't help you there. Personally, I like the burgundy/tan color better, but that's just me and it's not the most important factor. Good luck.

The 2010 with a 3.55 gear ratio should get better gas mileage right? What kind of mpg can you expect leaving everything stock and not getting on it much? Thanks

The 3.55's will definitely get you better gas mileage. I have the 3.73's and a buddy with 3.55's gets a good 2-3 mpg better than me using a mid-level SCT tune from RCD. The year of the truck won't determine the gears tho, you'll just have to check on both trucks.

Both seem a little expensive in the current market, I'd try to talk them down a little!! Good luck tho, you can't go wrong with either.

They are pretty firm on the prices which they seem to be real competitive on their prices from what I've found within 200 mile radius. Any more advise or input? Should the 2010 be more reliable and get better mpg? Thanks

Found a 2010 f-250 crew cab short bed fx4. Green/tan bottom. Every option except navigation. 16,000 miles for about $43,500 drive out. Sound like a fair price? Blue book is between $40,300-48,700

I wouldn't pay over $40k at this point for anything with a 6.4 in it. But that's just me, if you find a truck you love and are ok with the price thats all that matters, good luck!!

Also, don't let them talk to you about KBB numbers as if they matter today with these diesels, because they don't. Shop around eBay and autotrader to get a good feel of the current market value. If youre willing to travel you can get an even better deal ... I live in Illinois but found the truck I wanted for the price I wanted in Jacksonville Florida and its sitting in my drive way right now!!

I look at auto trader and craigslist. I see 2010's with 40k miles for 44-46k. So it seems to be a good price compared to others. I can find 2009 with 25-35k miles for about 37-39k. Just wanted to see what others who've bought them thought? Not really wanting to travel more than 200 miles in Texas.
