Something to think about and please 2008 people do not take this as a insult or anything.
I never buy the newest model of any vehicle but always the last run of the year model.
Instead of buying a 2008 new, I waited until the 2010 came out to buy my new truck.
I knew the 2011 (new motor and so on) were coming out.
The 2008-2009 models were basically test vehicles for poor design repairs.
Look through the forums there are tons of 2008 with lots of little problems but the 2010 has some fixes already applied, but of course still have problems.
Now I'm hearing a lot of 2011 with problems and Ford seems to be addressing them.
So for maybe a thousand more you might be able to buy a 2010 or 2009.
Seems to me the 2008 Job 1 trucks are having the most issues but of course it could be due to age/mileage.
151k if the engine was taken care of you are good for another 100K easily, now the transmission is a whole different store.
Just sharing a different perspective.
So if you can find a 2010 might be a better deal for only one reason:
Previous owner didn't have to go back and forth to the dealership for warranty repairs.
Example: Double o-ring for the coolant return hose (top hose). My 2010 came with the double o-ring.
