'13 6.7 vs '10 6.4

I'm in now in need of a DRW, time for the 2006 6.0 SRW to go. Thanks to the info from this site, I navigated through all the 6.0 issues (all under warranty...) and I very happy with the truck. My question:

My local dealer has two basically identical F350 DRW PSD's on the lot. CC, long bed, Lariat Ultimate, etc....
1. 2013 6.7. Nuf said. 64k list, 56k out the door with incentives/negotiated price
2. 2010 6.4, 30k miles, spotless, dealer trade, one owner, working on maintenance records (waiting to hear if it was serviced there) Probably 40k out the door (asking 43k).

Truck will be used pretty much exlusively to haul slide-in truck camper, towing 10k enclosed race hauler. I maintain rigorously and baby. I'm not interested in "mods" for "mods" sake. Currently only using an Edge programmer/monitor(EGT/oil,water temps etc..) for heavy tow option, never even used the performance tune.

I have read all I can about the potential issues, maintenace requirements, etc... I knew what I was getting into with the 6.0 from this site (bought with 30k miles in 2010, now 60K.) and was prepared for it. (Thought by '06 they had sorta fixed that stuff, but whatever)

So, opinions? We're talking 16k here...

40k seems high still should get it lower. But that don't matter go with the 6.7

6.7 for sure especially if you are going to leave it stock.

5 speed in 6.4 and 6 in 6.7. I was in your shoes when making a decision between some nice used 6.4s and the 6.7. I drove both and then redrove the 6.7. Sold. Now...that being said...I understand that if you delete a 6.4 you will have one heck of a truck. Not that a 6.7 is a slouch by any stretch...it's an awesome machine and pulls extremely well. But, for $16K...drive them both.

6.4's are reliable after deleting. The 6.7's are beasts in stock form.

Plus the 6.7 lariat ultimate has sweet creature comforts!

I dont like the navigation thing they did in the new trucks. Some love it...im not one of them.
However i do really like the rest of the new styling. If i were going to buy one and leave it alone for ONCE, then id go for the 6.7L. However 16k is a lot of dough. Thats kinda the reason i ended up with a 09 lariat instead of a 12 lariat when i was looking....its tough..id sink a few thousand in the 10 probably and mod it and have the other 8or9k bucks in the bank in case something went boom.....or just keep it stock, it has a warranty for another 2 years

I would bet if you posted this same question in the 6.4 forum the opinions would change some. Just something to think about. Guys are always biased towards what they have.
