Happy with your 6.7?

Ok, I am about to purchase either a 2009 6.4 King Ranch with about 10k miles on her or bite the bullet and just get a brand new 6.7 King Ranch. What would be the good decision? Should I save about 10k and spend more on mods or go ahead and get the new technology and the potential to be a better truck than the 6.4? Thanks for y'alls opinions ahead of time.

My boss just blew up the motor in his 6.0 and bought a 6.7 with a flatbed. They are pretty sick trucks, and the king ranch are really nice but no tuning if offered at this time. I'm sure everyone is gonna tell you it's a personal opinion. Both great trucks, but you can get the 6.4 up to like 535 hp with a tuner and dpf delete. So, its kinda depends on what your plans are for the truck.

I love my 6.7 so far. But then again this is my first diesel so I dont have anything to compare it against.

The nice thing about the newer trucks is, a warranty, cool options like 5th wheel prep package, the new nav system is killer too, and of course... new truck smell . Its all in what you want tho... do you want to mod... or just have a nice new shiney truck?

On the flip side.. you might be able to find a left over 2010 hiding somewhere for an awesome deal.

I dont have one yet but I do have a lot of time behind the wheel of them now and it blows my 7.3 away (specs in sig) like my 7.3 blew my 6.2L 84 Chevy away.

The 09 is a great truck. put 85k on one. The 6.4, dpf filter, and the transmission are ok... kinda like comparing a tape deck (Pioneer Super Tuner) to a I-Pod, or digital medium. The tape deck can deliver great sound, but....it's a tape deck! The 6.4 is a limited run engine, the 6,7 is a fresh platform. To me, it was an easy decision...
