Look at the build dates to see what job number they were. Job 1's (early 07 builds) had more issues than job 2's, and 3's. Pull and oasis and see if there were any radiator or injector issues on those trucks. If you are not going to tow all of the time the F250 is probably better and will get much better MPG's than the 450. Those 450's, even tuned struggle to get much above 10 mpg unloaded.
