Ok...I have to admit

Alright, I have to admit that I went to the dark side...About a year ago I traded in my 2010 F250 (my profile pic) and bought a 2011 Silverado Z71. I thought I wanted to get away from a Diesel for a while because I was not pulling my camper as much as I thought I would and am able to use our company truck to pull it when I do. Fast forward till now and I have lifted the Z71, 20's and 33's. It pulls like a turd when pulling my 25' South Bay Pontoon we recently purchased so back to Ford PSD I go. My question is should I find a 2010 again or go to a 2011-2013 range? I refuse to buy one of these new as its hard to justify 60 Grand plus on a vehicle. Any input is appreciated.

I have no personal experience with the 6.7 other than sitting in a couple. They are comfortable for sure. The few people I know that have had both said to get a 6.4. No idea why but they all liked them more than the new trucks... Not that they dislike the 6.7. I would say it really depends on what you are wanting out of the truck. If you have fuel economy in mind then I'd say go 6.7. If you're looking for easy power go 6.4. From what I've seen though the 6.7's are more reliable off the line

You should know how a 6.4 runs since you had one, go drive a 6.7

You will get more bang for the buck with a 6.4 and they are great motors when deleted and maintained. However, if you have emissions testing in your area, or you are concerned with the MPG then go with a 6.7

True...

And I dont have emissions testing in Oklahoma. Just hard to find a 2010 with low enough miles to feel good about it.

2010 if your deleting. If you go with the 6.7 I'd avoid the 2011

Looking at a 2012 King Ranch...Also considering going another route and buying an 06-07 Built 6.0 . There are a couple around here that are available in the 120K mile range but have been studded etc. and just keeping my z71 for a daily.

Also, why would I go with a 6.4 over a 6.7 for deleting purposes? Does the 6.7 not do as well deleted?

A DELETED 6.4 will make twice the power of a deleted 6.7.......if you dont want the power i would go 2012 if you do go 2010 look nationally for the truck, not just in your local area.... im in oregon and just bought a
Jag out of NYC.......i cant get rid of my 08 fora newer truck cause i dont want to lose all of that power.....ill just upgrade my interior and whatever else i need to do.... truck is still pretty clean and still runs tight....
