Which of these two?

I am new to the site and diesels and am doing a ton of research. I am full aware of the 6.0 issues and while looking through some classified this morning ran into these two trucks for sale.

2006 F250 CCSB Lariat 45k miles, bone stock, asking 22,000.

2008 F250 CCSB Lariat 114k miles, tonneau cover, everything else stock, asking 21,900.

Assuming both have not been abused and have had regular maintenance, (neither have ever been chipped) which of the two would you pick. These are both what I am looking for, stock, not chipped, and about what I want to pay. I am still about a month away from being ready to buy one but I am just trying to get an idea of what you guys would pick as part of the education process.

I am looking for a long lasting truck that will not be a daily driver.

Aren't the warranties usually 5 year OR 100k? If it wasn't in warranty would you still pick the '06? low miles or different engine. I guess that is the question.

unlikely the 06 has any warranty.
Do you plan to keep it stock do you have emissions to pass?
stock the 06 should have fewer concerns than the 08.
I personally like the interior and style of the 08 more. Also 08 has more potential with minor mods.

Thanks for the comments. The only thing I plan to do to it is put a shell on it for my dogs. I am trying to figure out if higher miles on a newer truck is better than an older truck with lower miles. I think that I like the looks of the 08 better but I have never had a diesel and am just trying to see what you all think.

Like I said before I don't think either of these will be around when I will be ready to buy a truck (1-2 months) but am reading everything I can about them to figure what is best for me.

edit to add: I do have to comply with emission standards so an egr delete is not an option.

Looks like the 6.4's are getting worse mpg's. I know I would be real dumb to be looking at getting stellar mpgs with a big truck but at the same time I'm not going to lie and say it won't be a factor. It seems like with parts and tunes the 6.4 can get to the same level as the 6.0 but I am nervous about doing that stuff. I just want a stock truck that will take care of me while I take care of it.

I currently have a 6.0 and a 6.4. I had all the typical 6.0 problems but now that they're "fixed", the truck is great. That being said, my 6.4 is a much nicer truck. Both are Lariats and the 6.4 feels like a grown up truck inside. Getting ready to put a tuner on the 6.4 and everyone says it'll run laps around a 6.0 with similar mods.

Whether you're planning on staying completely stock or modding it, I would lean towards the 6.4. Updated styling, not as many motor issues as the 6.0, greater potential if you do decide to mod it...

The 6.4 will run laps around a 6.0 but if you don't want to mod it then I would probably say go with the 6.0 and maintain the crap out of it.
