Which truck?

I have had a 6.0 tuned and lifted and loved it. Bad thing is I traded it when I changed jobs. Now I have the opportunity to own another powerstroke and I am trying to figure out which one? My wife likes the 6.7's because all the creature comforts which aren't bad. I like. The 6.4's because all of the power and the easy mods you can do to them. So the question's are 6.7 or 6.4, if I go 6.4 I have two trucks picked out and which one of those? One has a BDS 4 link 8inch lift with all the mods that I would do as far as tuning it and the other has a fab tech 10 inch lift with amp research steps but not tuned or deleted. It is a KR and the other isn't. So any help would be greatly appreciated.

Leave it stock = 6.7

Make it fast/reliable/$1500 extra in mods = 6.4

Do you take a lot of trips in your truck? If so I'd say go for the comfort, if not I'd go for the power.

We will be making long trips in it but that is part of the reason I was looking at the 6.4 seeing that when it is tuned you can get in the 20 mpg range. There is also about a $10,000 difference in price.

10k diffrence in price? Well if it was me Id go with the 6.4. But Id have to question the 20mpg. Ive heard alot of horror stories about mpg's and the 6.4. Power making beast's but very thirsty. Heck I may be wrong.

I consistently get 17 mpg (hand calculated) when I don't have a trailer hooked up to my 6.4. I got over 19 mpg on a trip from Texas to Kansas last year over the entire 2,000 mile trip.

As someone else said, stock = 6.7...if you plan on doing any performance mods, go with a 6.4.

I have a 6" lift with 37" tires. Going from Waco to South Padre I was able to pull a little over 16 mpg driving very conservatively and all highway. Tune set at mild and tire psi was max. There is no way you will get 20 mpg on a lifted truck. I normally only get around 12 average. Love the truck, but not the most fuel efficient. My dad has a bone stock 6.7. He is getting about 19 highway right now, but it has only had a couple of oil changes so far. As far as creature comforts go, you can do almost everything to the 6.4 that the 6.7 has. Hands down, I would go with a tuned/deleted 6.4.

If I were you I would get the newest truck I could afford. The 6.4 especially lifted is not going to get 20 MPG's. I have been tracking every fuel up for 60k miles on fuelly. Here is the link if you care to see. Mine gets pretty horrible mileage. Pearl (Ford F-250 Super Duty) | Fuelly
