Doc, is that truck a diesel? I bought a '05 f250 crew cab 4x4 brandy new and drove it for almost 7 years. It was a great truck. Had a couple of hiccups with the 6.0 diesel, but all in all, it wasn't that bad. I traded it in for a 2012 F350 and LOVE this truck!
PPP, not a diesel, the 5.4 Triton gas motor. And I'm not sure I'll be buying that truck andy longer. I spoke with my boss and a few friends and they're all saying to go for a diesel. Now it's down to these two (plus that 5.4 pictured if I want it but it's not an extended cab).
I think that for the amount of driving I'll be doing that the diesel would be best. Plus they say that the 7.3 diesel only breaks in at around 150k miles, that it go to over 300k and many do last for well over that.
