Is trading a 2011 F-150 for a F-250 6.4L worth it?

New to the site and to diesels in general. I have a 2011 F-150 that I put up for sale yesterday in my town and a guy approached me with an offer to trade his 2010 F-250 6.4L because he needs to downgrade. The truck comes with a Mini-Maxx tuner, H&S programmer with delete pipe, "whatever the hell that means" like i said, new to diesels. He also states no mech problems since he has owned the truck. Im looking for a diesel in the 32-35k price range to pull my boat everywknd which weighs 6K lbs roughly. when pulling it with the F-150, you definetly know its back there. Would this be a good deal or am I getting suckered? His truck has approx 50k miles also. Any help would be appreciated!!

Sounds like a good deal but almost too good to be true!!... Have a diesel mechanic check it out diesel repairs can be super expensive take it from me!!

Yea i hear ya, thats why im kind of spooked by the idea, especially having ZERO knowledge of diesels. Did that year with the 6.4L have alot of troubles? I know the 6.0L did

I have a 6 liter and love it but im not too familiar with the 6.4. They came out in 08 so i think by 2010 they would have worked the bugs out. I have heard its a very good motor... Might have minor issues like 6.0 but still great motors!

The 6.4 is a great motor. Especially by 2010 they have the bugs worked out. And it sounds like he has removed the part that gives the 6.4 relatively the only issue (ie the DPF). Just do a lot of reading here. I love my 6.4 and would never go back to a small underpowered F150 (now don't take offense to that statement. I know they have great engines, but my truck has nearly 600HP and 1200ft-lbs AT THE WHEELS and I embarrassed my roommates 2008 Mustang GT)...

The thing about these motors is maintenance, maintenance, maintenance. Get an OASIS report in his truck, and if you are wanting a diesel it's a good truck.

It's kinda like a carfax but more detailed with service done. You can get it at a ford dealership if you have his VIN.

It's a report that documents any and all work done at a ford dealership, which is greet bc that truck is still under warranty I presume, which means probably any and all repair work had been done by the dealership. Sounds like a way better deal for you, maybe he's just that desperate for your truck? Idk. Like country aggie said- the mini maxx tuner and dpf delete pipe are parts that delete
The emissions equipment off these trucks, which is what will kill them overtime. And the EPA has forced h&s (who makes the mini maxx) to stop selling tuners that disable the dpf from
Working. They used to cost about a $1000 bucks but they're selling for around $1500-$2000 today, so that's good it already has that and has been deleted already.

If the 250 drives nice (no pulling or weird noises, tires worn even). Esp. if checks out ok with a tech (who knows what to look for & has the right software) I think the diesel owner is getting suckered in to your 150 for a straight across trade with no money on your part (unless I missed something...than my bad).
