I think it was 08 that the DPF was added. Granted, you can strip that off, but personally I'd rather have an engine that never had one to begin with. The DPF will cost you some mileage.

In my mind, the big jump for PS's was in 05 when they revised the front suspension.

Just personal opinion, but I never really warmed up to the newer front end look. Prefer 05-07 myself, but I might be biased because I have an 06.

not sure what the DPF is.? and I don't want to buy a truck with that many miles on it and not get and 150k-200k out of it. Do you like your 06? any problems with the motor, tranny or anything, How many miles do you have on it. I hear a lot of poeple complain about the 6.0, 6.4 But don't know any one that owns one to know for sure. To me they are all good looking trucks and i know wht you meant about the new front end. But i'm looking for dependablity.
