I'm debating the same thing as you. My opinion is if I'm going to spend any money on a truck I'm going to try and get as new as possible. Plus the new trucks ride, drive, and turn better than any 7.3 trucks. Also the King Ranch Edition is sweet!

Anything you can do to a 7.3 can be done to a 6.0 now. The new 6.4 is making huge power in its infant stages of modification. They are giving the new trucks away with the way todays economy is. Sad part is they want to steal your old truck. My only hesitation is the new motor Ford is putting out in the next year or two. I'm sticking with my 05 Cummins CR until we see how the new Ford turns out. Our inside connection tells us good things should come from the next engine. Maybe ride the old 7.3 for another year?
