The 6.4 I'm looking at is a 2008 f250 with 131,000 that drives good and is in good shape. The only thing I'm not sure of is the motors. I know the early 6.0 had problems but I have talked to a couple of guys with the 6.4 and they where saying I could expect the radiator, injector pump, head baskets to go and then the dpf to deal with. I am just curious on your guys opinion. Both trucks are the same price. Personally I like the 08 better but I am a little hesitant with the known problems. This will be my first psd so I'm not very familiar with the 6.0 and the 6.4. Thanks for any advice.
Both have 131000.. ouch.. The 6.0 has a "new" engine, who knows why, and who knows how it was maintained to warrant a new motor. I myself would stay away from that one. As for the 6.4.. I had a 2010 with the 6.4 and it was gone less than 12000 miles and less than a year later because it was not a reliable truck...Two major oil leaks and two fuel injector issues were enough for me to dump it in Fords lap. Honestly, it's your choice, it's your money so make your choice wisely.. I don't know what your checkbook will allow, but the 6.7's are proving to be more reliable than the 6.4's from what I've read. I own a 2011 6.7L and love it. no mechanical issues, just a couple of software glitches that I have to iron out.
