07 or 09 PSD?
Hi folks... newbie here of course... been reading about these two models (the '07 6.0 v '09 6.4)... I asked a similar question a few weeks earlier... I have narrowed it a little more... I'm not in an immediate hurry, but am looking to buy a 'stock' CCSB loaded Lariat with less than 40k miles, and pay no more than around $32k for a '07 and $38-39k for a '09. There are many very nice trucks that meet that criteria. I'm skipping the '08 to avoid first job/yr issues, and the '10 as it is too close in price to the '11. The 6.7 has good prospects but I will only buy it 'used' in maybe '13 after further price depreciation and demonstrated reliability. SO... esthetics aside (the newer 08+ styling does grow on ya), any thoughts on spending the additional $6-7k for the 09/6.4 vs the 07/6.0? With the '09... I'd be getting more factory warranty (if I don't gas it or forget to drain the water)... but I'd take a MPG hit (unless I DPF delete/retune with a temporary only 'cheater pipe' as PA has annual auto smog visual inspections in my area, I'll be missing that cool 6.0 turbo-whistle, and I'd like to perhaps play with a vegistroke conversion some day, but that doesn't sound like it may be an option with a 6.4/6.7... BUT, will I be getting away with less potential fixes/mods with the 6.4 v 6.0 (6.0 oil cooler/EGR cooler delete or mod/ELC/studs...etc? Not interested in more power (from either engine), I just want a lower cost of ownership. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and opinions!
