what truck to buy

it will be a 4x4 crewcab drw truck lariat or king ranch

ok i know i am still some what new and been driving a non turbo 7.3 since '92. so the one i have been driving is broke down in Ga. and i live in Ar. so ya its a ways from home . and i am going to have to buy a new truck.

so i have been looking at alot of 2008's with 6.4's with in the 20,000 mile rang looking for really low miles. they have been in the $36,000 range

and a few 6.0 trucks with low miles like 30,000 that have been in about the $30,000 range.

or should i just swing a new 2011 as i can't wait to the 2012's as i pretty much have to find a truck in 10 days or i am in a money making problem. without a truck.

so i really really need help . i know theres lots of info on here good and bad about them all. but don't really have time to read it all. as it would be best if i can buy one in the next few days.
and i know as soon as i get the new or used rig i will be on here all the time . learning how to make it last and more power and i hope without problems .
and i don't know if this is the spot of the thread but if not move.

Im not an expert but I think you would be happy with any of the 3. I mean if you can swing a new 6.7 go for it. If you had a little more time and could find a good deal on a 6.0 then put $2k-3k into it and have a bada**truck

And where at in GA did you break down?
