expected engine life of 6.7

Do we have a expected mechanical engine life of the 6.7,I am upgrading from my 6.0 that only has 69k on it 05 and was going to go 6.4 at around 100k since I could tear junk off and have pretty reliable truck.

I found a high mileage 6.7 150k for about same money and just wondering opinions on which to go with the 6.7 oasis is pretty clean and nothing but engine exhaust temp sensor and a turbo coolant hose have been replaced.

I would keep the 6.0, and dump about 5g into it to bullet proof it... Upgrade FICM, studs, EGR and EGR cooler delete, upgrade oil cooler and fuel system...

It is 2011, I've already decided to move up from. 6.0 as I believe if I am to bulletproof a motor the 6.4 would be better in long run either will be paid for as 6.0 is almost paid off.

Truck isn 't driven now just planning on new heavy fifth wheel toyhauler and wanting most suitable rug for that purpose.

You are in a pickle with those two choices.
I think everybody knows that I believe the 6.4L is the most bullet proof monster ever made for a pick up truck, but with one caveat..

The 08'-10' emissions system used was a 100% EGR. It's an engine killing, oil polluting, bearing wasting, seal burning, piston eating cancer on the engine. There is no way around it, except to shut it down as soon as you drive it off the lot new..
Any diesel that uses this kind of emissions system will be junk within a very short amount of time. If the truck is still stock at 100K, the back two pistons are ready to fail from driving the regen process.
If the 6.4L you are looking at had a tuner installed that shut down the EGR and regen, then by all means, move forward with it. It'll be great. If not, run....

The 6.7L with 150K? Not enough data and a very complicated and expensive emissions system.
I think I would keep looking....

Yeah, I'm doing a lot of thinking but I know I don't want to bother bulletproofing the 6.0 because it's just not the truck I want, I like it but settled on it when I bought it and in 5 years have only put 35k on it

What is your price point? Is this just a tow rig or something? I would find a lower mile 6.7 with less options if possible.

Just take your time and don't rush it. The perfect truck will fall in your lap. All you need to do is keep your eyes open and watch..

Honestly wanting to keep it under 30 since I can have it paid off shortly after selling mine, there is a 6.4 with 107k on it that ford replaced motor at 101 so if price was right, that would be a good candidate.

I'm pretty specific on what I want since I'll prob keep very long time, it will get lifted and just be 3rd vehicle that also pulls trailer for vacations.

At what price would that 6.7 make sense? Pretty much what I want as far as king ranch and a long bed with SRW in black or blue.
