Why 6.4?

I'm new to diesel's. I was researching and test drove a 6.0. Truck was pretty awesome. I'm sold on a diesel just don't know which one. I've heard the problems with the 6.0 and it really bothers me. Are there as many issues with the 6.4? Here are the trucks I'm looking at. What do I need to look for when test driving?

Do you plan on bulletproofing and deleting? And don't let the 6.0's problems scare you away from them. They're solid engines once straightened out.

costs a lot more to make a 6.0 reliable than a 6.4. Might as well put that money towards a better truck!

why 6.4?

because awesome

I would rather purchase one that has had everything done. Would you guys purchase one already fixed?

basic build on a 6.4 and you have a pretty good ride.tuner. dpf delete. intake optional EGR delete. as long as you dont race at every light its a good truck.... All depends on how it was taken care of in the beginning also. maintanence and what it was used for. OASIS report also with carfax. check out the underneath and pop the hood to see if there are leaks or anything of that nature.
