Want help on choice of diesel truck

Ok I need help here and I can't do it on my own.

I got the 96 in my Sig 2wd 286k turned up probably over 300 horses great truck love it

I was offered a 94 factory turbo idi reg cab 5spd 4x4 rebuilt bottom end as it spun a bearing. The odometer doesn't work but the former owner said it had around 90k on it..

Pros idi cheaper in all ways and it has 4x4 and a great exhaust note IMHO

Cons idi hard to find hop up parts , Ur gonna have to make everything if u want ok power. It's a reg cab and a manual. That limits ppl and certain drivers.

Pros powerstroke ext cab and built auto , can get better mileage as it lighter

Cons powerstroke it 2wd and winter can be bad up here and it sucks in the winter and don't get that great of mileage.

Give me your input
