08 ford or a 04 with 24v cummins

I was thinking about trading my 2004 f250 6.0l for a new 08 with the 6.4l. They are giving some pretty good discounts are here but from what i have heard the fuel millage sucks. So does anyone have an opion should i trade my truck in on a 08 or keep my 04 and put a 24v cummins

Hmmm... Now there is a tough question.

If you like having a warranty, but want to do mods, I would say skip the 6.4. However if don't want to do mods or don't care about not having a warranty, I say go for it.

The 2008 Superduty is one badaz truck. The interiors are super comfortable and it's just a great all around truck.

The fuel mileage isn't so bad with these trucks. I average about 15 to 15.5mpg with mine now. That is about 65% city and 35% highway driving unloaded. When I go for longer trips my mileage goes way up. I have seen as high as 21mpg on the highway. Towing a trailer is different story. I haven't really been out very much with mine to give you accurate stats. I had my trailer on for 3 days straight and in those 3 days I averaged 12.3 with a 65/35 split. But that's all I got on the trailer side. As business picks up I will have better numbers for you.

I say if you can get a great deal on a 2008, go for it.
