6.0 or 6.4

I'm looking to buy a new truck about a year from now. I am keeping the 01 dually, so I'm looking at either an 05-07 6.0 f350 w SRW, or 08-10 w SRW. Which one should I go with? Trying to keep the price under 25k

I drove a 6.4 for 2 years for work. Loved it but now I've got a 6.0 for work. How's the mileage on yours? Any mods? Problems?

i suppose it would all depend on how long you wanna keep the truck? im under the impression that the 6.0 engines last longer than the 6.4 engines. i dont know of many 6.4 engines past 200K miles but im also sure thats due to the fact that they are simply not that old. but i know of many 6.0s over 300k some even 400k. my 6.0 gets 18 MPG and knock on wood ive been pretty problem free.

Ive had both, actually within 2 days of each other I owned both and towed teh same unit with both.

My 6.0 was lifted, tuned, deleted, full exhaust, CAI, blah blah, it was my baby. Then I drove the 6.4 stock 100% and towed the same thing, and to say it was better would be the biggest understatement ever.

It rides better, quieter, tows so much better, and honestly, I feel will be a 100% better vehicle.

I'd vote the 6.4

I have never owned a 6.0 but have had my 6.4 since 40k miles and it has 116k on it now. I have had many many problems with it some self inflicted and some not. Mileage is terrible 11 in town 15-16 highway. I do however drive the piss out of it.

That is a sick looking truck man, I wanted white but no one in 150 miles had it, and I needed the truck within 2 days of my 6.0 going poop.

Are those Nfab side bars or another brand, and how are they holding up? Friend had NFab knockoffs on his 1500 and they were junk. I have brand new chrome step bars on my 2010 I just got, but I want NFabs or look alikes, but want ones that will last.

Thanks a lot man. Mine are nfab, the wife got them for me for christmas. They are really sturdy. Paint is of course getting scuffed up in the normal areas but cant really do anything about that.
