What do I do???

Alright heres the story.

My 6.4 needs a clutch real bad ($2000 South Bend Dual Disc). Should I put a clutch in it and keep it. It been great. Or do I take the opportunity to turn it back to stock and trade in for a new 6.7?

I'm looking for your guys' opinions because I want to know what made you guys take the plunge on the new one.

I drove it. Beautiful Black Crew Cab Long bed Lariat. Absolutely loved it. But is it worth it?

Had a 09 6.4 and made the "mistake" of test driving a new one. Ended up taking it home I would say it was certainly worth it... I ended up justifying the buy because of the overall improvements of the truck, the fit and finish and the fact they had the price wrong and got it for 46300 when it stickered for 58300

Now that's a great deal. Did you just hold em to the advertised price? I bet they were pissed. That's way below cost.

Certainly did, I was comparing it to a new FX4 F150 and F150 lariat side by side, and sales lady wrote all stock numbers down on same write up sheet. Came back and showed me the numbers the sales manager wrote at bottom. The F250 was the lowest lol. I asked if that was correct and she said yes. So I said, it's sold lol. While in Finance they came in and swooped up the paperwork and walked out. Came in after a bit and said, you sure you want this truck? I was yes, why....I already started signing the finance paperwork. They were like your one lucky SOB, they wrote down the F150 Lariat price

So I guess I got lucky, only went in to look at the new body style to kill time while girlfriend was looking at a car. For that deal, figured I would take it. Ended up trading my 09 F250, got 42500 for it. So only paid tax on like 4k, so TTL was low, with GAP I ended up out the door for 48kish

You sound a little like me. My last truck had a transfer case issue, AC issue and fuel gage that did not work. I was tired of trying to fix it and it was time to move on and get back into a Ford. After test driving it I was hooked!
