I would be really careful buying an '11. They are plagued with trans, hpfp and turbo issues.
True many have had no problems.
Also true that many many have had a nightmare issue and end up dumping the truck because of the way Ford either can't resolve the problems or won't.
The trans has shifting issues, sometimes major, like when it goes into neutral for a few seconds between gears.
HPFPs fail and Ford has been refusing to warranty them.
Turbos fail, sometimes it takes out the whole engine. Figure months of downtime.
For the meager 15-20% discount you are getting (compared to new) you sure are taking on a lot of risk. I wouldn't touch one with a ten foot pole for a mere ten grand (my loaded truck was 52 out the door.)
If you are just looking to save some money and get a used truck, go with the 6.4. You'll save even more money and get something that was at the top of it's game when it hit end of life.
