Which truck should I buy?

Hi I am in the process of buying a new truck.(new to me) I found a 09 F250 King Ranch in as far as I can tell perfect condition. The truck is immaculate. In fact its itting in the drive way as we speak because I was all but certain it was the truck I wanted. Then I got an email from a friend linking articles talking about the 6.7 being a better motor and people really love them. So I talked to the dealer and he found me a '11 King Ranch for the same price with less miles. If everything being the same I would of course choose the '11 but I personally like the 09 interior better because the leather is nicer. Theyve started putting regular leather in the king ranches now and just dying it brown. But if the '11 6.7 is so much better I may have to go for it. Any info would be helpful.

Thx

how many miles to the trucks have? the 6.7 scares me in a few ways. i dont like that ford deny's 12000 dollar repairs on the fuel system and i dont like that it eats turbos.

the 6.4 eats radiators and if you amp the power to much will blow the gaskets and or crack pistons.

I have an 11 6.7 and I love my truck. It was built August 11th, 2010 and only problems its ever had was a bad NOx sensor (previous owner), power steering hose, and power steering pump which was my fault because I let the hose leak for two months before it was changed and the pump was ran dry a few times. I bought my truck used with 59365km (36997 miles) and had it Spartan tuned at about 76000km (47224 miles) and now have 102000km (63380 miles) and every time I drive it it still puts a smile on my face

I'd go with the 6.4. IIRC, by 09 they had better radiators and the first year of the 6.7 is usually where you hear the "horror stories" about 3 motors being replaced, being in the shop for 2 months, etc.

Check the fuel bowl on the 6.4 for corrosion. If there is, walk away
