I may need a new truck, 05 and up 6.0 or 6.4?

I'm new to the diesel world and bought a 05 F250 King Ranch cc in May. Not 2 months later some bastard just stole the thing Sunday morning..........The cops still have a week and a half before my insurance considers it gone and starts the process of cutting me a check. I know about some of the main issues with the 6.0 and did the full bullet proof oil cooler and egr cooler. Don't know much about the 6.4. I live in California soooooo nothing is going to be deleted. Which would you guys recommend? Truck is mostly for commuting, maybe towing one day once I get toys and not much on the sitting idling unless its stop and go traffic. Finances are going to keep me under 30k

Maintaining all emission control equipment, I'll recommend the 6.0L hands down.

Start doing your research, and know what to look for when you start your search.
Hate to hear your '05 got stolen, but good luck with getting everything handled.

I would agree. If you are going to leave it bone stock, I would stick with a 6.0. It will get better MPG's bone stock than a 6.4 will. Hope they find your truck and its in one piece still.

if i had to stay stock....i would go with an 07 6.0 i would not do a 6.4 just because of stock MPG...tuned its a no brainer, but the MPG's are horrible stock..

The Sheriff's department found it this morning...what I know with out actually seeing it first hand is its on three spare tires...bye bye 20"s on 35x nitto tires, ignition is all messed up, and dash has been torn out out to get the dvd navigation stereo...that's all I've been told over the phone by the tow yard. It's going to get towed to local Ford dealer to get checked, still a wait and see game...
