7.3 6.4 or 6.7

I am looking for another truck...

I slid off the road the other day after a car accident call. the amount of damage was enough for the insurance to total my truck.

Now I am looking for another truck to use as a DD. I tow, load, haul, and use my truck for everything as well as just to cruise for fun and errands.
I am just looking for opinions from y'all on what you are happiest with and/or the most disappointed with.

I love my 7.3 but I'm not sure that would be the best option in 2013.

An already bulletproofed 6.0 would be the best bang for your buck. They've been proven tough engines once the work is done. And because of all the 6.0 hate, you can get them fairly cheap

I vote no on the 6.4 because I've heard nothing but bad about them. Apparently the twin turbo setup wasn't such a good idea

6.7 would be dead sexy but can you afford the price tag on one? Not calling you broke lol but those things you might as well pull out a mortgage to get one

7.3's are proven tough. But are the trucks of the past. I love our 7.3 but when it comes time for me to get my own I'm going with a bulletproofed 6.0.

Never count out a 6.0 for the right price... Just seen an 05 CCLB 6.0 for only $12,900. That's a steal IMO!
