Would you buy a 6.4L again?

I'm thinking of buying an 08' King Ranch 450 6.4L with 80,000. I currently own a 96' 7.3L with 175,000 that won't start, and I've given up on it.

My 7.3L has been a worry free truck since I bought it in 98'. I don't want to buy a truck that needs a bunch of repairs to it just to make it dependable, such as head gaskets, studs, egr, etc.

And it seems suspect to me that the 6.4L has already been replaced with the 6.7L.

I'm torn between the Dodge 6.4L and the Ford 6.7L. Any guidance and advice is greatly appreciated.

Yeah, I did find it, before I read replies to this one. I understand the search function and use it often, but when I started this post I had just gotten ready for work and was headed out the door when I decided at the last minute sign on and post this question.

Thanks,
Gil
