What do you all think?

Im looking at getting a diesel and have been looking at the 6.4 and 6.7. I will be towing larger loads about 15 to 20 times a year, may be more now that I have my own truck. It would be used as a work truck. I would drive it about 2 days during the week and then all through the weekend. Looking at a f350. My question was that I was looking at getting a used 2011 but i like the prices of a used 09 or 10 for what I will be using it for. I was thinking maybe fine one with about 70 to 100k on it and then do some work on it. where is what I was looking to do

Dpf delete
biggdogg cylinder heads
fuel water separator

I can get the truck with the option i want on it, have it fixed up that should fix just about all the problems that the 6.4 has add and this should be a great truck for many years to come.

Just wanted to see what you all thought about this.

Thank you in advance.

The only thing I wish I had from the 6.7 is the 6spd transmission. And maybe the cooled seats because who wants to sweat all summer long?

I can't complain about my 6.4 especially after the deletes and straight pipe. Sounds good, runs well, and gets decent mileage.

The 6.7 (based on what I have read) will ride better, get better gas mileage, and is more comfortable...plus you can control auto tranny and have an exhaust brake...depends on where you live (terrain) and how much weight you are talking about whether that is a big deal....my 6.4 has quite a few mods and MANUAL tranny. I used a tuner to make an exhaust brake and even though it is a SRW F350 with 3.73s and 35s, it does a great job grossing up to 33,500....once it even grossed around 36k but that was only for 80 total miles. I love my 6.4 and wont ever sell it. That said, I would make your decision more on what you find and how well you can verify it was maintained...the 6.4 does require maintenance, but can be a great truck if properly maintained and you address the weak links. From my little knowledge on the 6.7, they (like all trucks) have weak links too. Not sure about maintenance with them. Good luck
