Unhappy please help me!

I'm looking at getting a new truck I have a 2004 f350 and have had nothing but problems with it! so needless to say should I be looking at the new 2011 with the 6.7 or stay with the 2010 6.4?

I know the new 6.7's are alot more reliable and fuel efficient. The 6.4's are no where near as efficient on fuel and in my opinion not as reliable. But there are some pretty good discounts now on the 10's so whatever floats your boat! Hope this helps!

The 6.4 waste a little more fuel than 6.7, cause the 6.4 has DPF(which can be remove if you get a DPF DELETE KIT) The 6.4 has 3:73 gears & the 6.7 has 3:55 gears, also the 6.7 must use urea

The 6.7 has a very small DPF also and you can get 3.31 gears in it to help with mileage. Guys with them have said they still pull like a mule, but obviously if you are pulling 12,000 plus very much, it would be better to get a lower ratio.
I think the 6.4 has proven to be a decent engine. It just doesn't get the mileage unless you delete the DPF and void your warranty, which most people would [U]never[U] do.

Do you plan on staying stock? Unsure of what the aftermarket has to offer on the 6.7, not even sure what the tuners are going to be able to do.

I say go for the 6.7! Take the 6.4 for a ride first, then hop in a new 6.7. Bet the 2011 model will follow you home!! Damn nice trucks, thats for sure. Have faith in Ford on this one, its not going to be a screw up. The attention they have been giving to owners with slight issues is just mind boggling. Way cool customer service! Seriously, this is make it or break it for Ford right now. If this motor turns out to be another knock-off then pack your bags Ford, GAME OVER!

P.S., please post some pictures of the 2011 when you get it!

Why's that? The 6.4 isn't perfect, but the 6.7 has only been out for 3 months.
