08 6.4 f450 what you guys think?

Hey guys,I have a trade offer and I've kind of been kicking the idea of trading with the guy and would like some other input from other psd enthusiasts. I have the truck in my sig for trade,08 f250 Lariat 97k miles super slick nice truck has 5inch exhaust,h&s xrt race tunes,cai. The guy is wanting to trade me his white/tan 08 f450 Lariat super slick nice truck BUT there is two things that are bothering me about it.... First being its 2WD! 2nd being it has 170k miles vs mine with 97k.. Good news is his truck has a brand new engine that was completly deleted soon after the engine was installed,he has two sets of tires and wheels one set is the gorgeous factory 19.5's and the other set is 22inch american force wheels with 35inch trail grapplers. He doesnt want to include the 22's and I think that would about be the only way to get the values to match up is with him including both wheels and tires. What I'm trying to figure out is,would I be stuck with this truck with those kind of miles and 2wd? It does have a new documented engine.. What you guys think? Thanks

You're getting the VERY short end of the stick on either of those trades

I wouldn't take either of those trades. First off, if you like any off road capability, you will be sorely disappointed with the 2 wheel drive F450. That thing will get stuck in slightly wet grass. As far as the dodge, the only thing good on old dodge trucks is the Cummins.

Agreed! I would hold off until something else comes down the line... Doesnt seem like a good trade at all.

450 6.4s tend to cavitate there front covers as wel,l cuz they run up rpm down the road and create destructive air bubbles so that is a HUGE issue with that.

Yeah I knew they had more cavitation issues.... Think this is something I should be worried about? Wasn't there a way to prevent this from happening?
