Decision time

Here it goes. As some of you may remember, my girlfriend totaled my '99 1 yr ago. She promised to replace it ( yes, we're still together ). We are trying to decide between an buying a new H2 and swapping a 7.3 into it or buying this:





It's an '08 F-650, 300 Hp Cat ( C-7 I think ), Allison 6-speed auto, 4 captain's chairs & bench rear, pretty sure it has a 100 gal fuel tank, 3 tanks on driver's side are fake/storage, dvd/nav with either PS3 or X-box360 and a bunch of other crap, including 4 wheel drive. ( I like this one the best ).
Let me know which is the better route.
