NEED HELP WITH DECISION!!

O.K. as most of you know I have a 97 350 CC LB 4x4, 5 speed, intake, TS 6pos chip and 5" mitre stacks. Everything else bone stock. What most of you don't know is that I also have an 04 250 XCab 4x4, auto, completely stock. 97 has nothing wrong with it, solid clean truck. 04 just got back from the dealership having gotten done the usual, Egr cooler, engine cooler, head gaskets yada yada yada. 3,000 miles later and the truck is still running like a champ, no problems whatsoever. My problem is one of them has to go. If you guys were in this similiar situation what would ya'll do??

Mileage is a big factor, but not really at the same time. I'm not a huge OBS fan (but do like them), and the possibilities with the 04 are greater. It's definitely a tough call for sure. I'd keep the 04, that's my $.02
