New guy looking for opinions
Hey all, new guy from southern Saskatchewan Canada originally from Nova Scotia, been lurking on the forum here for quite a while and finally got around to joining up. Seems like a great forum full of lots of info. I've been reading alot of thread similar to my situation but not exactly the same so if someone has already answered my questions I apologize.
In about a month or so I'm going to be looking to buy a truck and I've decided I want a big diesel. I rarely tow anything my v6 durango can't haul, though I do hope to be moving back to the maritime provinces within the next year or so and would like something that can haul our durango. Just always loved a big diesel. I've been looking around to see what there is in the price range I'm looking for and see as far as f-350's go I'll be looking at 06-08 or the odd deal on an 09-10. All I've seen in my price range have just under 200k km's on them so that would be around 120k miles. Have my eye on a couple king ranch's, just love the looks of em.
I live in town and would only drive about 5-10km a day, might get to stretch out on the highway once a month. Most that I've seen around have already had Egr delete/studs done or dpf delete done, so no worry there.
All things considered would the 06-07 6.0 or the 08 6.4 be more reliable for me? Buying one at that high of mileage, is it reasonable to think it's past it's prime, or will I get my money's worth out of one?
