Ok, if the title didn't get your attention, not sure what will. I'm new here to the forums, been on here a few months educating myself on the new 6.7L, F250s and diesels in general. Finally sold my Avalanche and I'm ready to pull the trigger on a 6.7L. This will be my first Ford and first diesel, so I'm really excited and ready to pull the trigger on this baby!
I've seen the amount of diesel wisdom on these forums so this is definitely the right place to get my answer, I appreciate your guys input.
On to my question... Ideally I'd like to keep my budget in the ballpark of $35k, but could go up to $40k if I find something I can't live without. I live in Dallas so pricing here in TX on these trucks is pretty good as it is. I'm looking mostly at 2011 Lariat or KR CCSBs, and have narrowed it down to three or four here in Dallas or within 200 miles. My question is, to stay at my target budget I'm looking at probably getting a truck with almost 100,000 miles on it (looks like guys are unloading them right before they hit 100,000 mi and run out of warranty). If I spend up to $40k, then I can get a truck with significantly less mileage, I've found a couple in the 40,000 mile range...
So, is it worth it to save $5k and go with the higher mileage truck, or just bite the bullet, stretch a little and get something with less mileage on it?
