Why NOT to buy used........
Biggest reason that comes to mind is you don't know if it has been beat on. (57k in one year is a LOT of miles) Could have been all highway with minimal towing, or could have been used for cross-country hot-shotting.
In my mind, for a price diff of 5-10k I would buy the new truck and have some peace of mind. The other consideration is that a newer 6.7 will have fewer bugs the factory hasn't already addressed. There are some 12s with problems, but a lot less than 11s. Haven't heard much of anything about 13s. (you can look up the build date/window sticker of both trucks online)
I have had several dodge 3500s, and even though the cummins motor is a great engine, Ford builds a much better truck all around. I now have 6k on my cc F350 dually, and am VERY happy with it. Happy hunting, Scott
