'08 or '11 F350 KR???????

I'm looking to buy a "new" truck. What's your opinion of the '08 F350 King Ranch (6.4L & 85,000 miles) versus a newer '11 F350 King Ranch with the 6.7L and only 36,000 miles.

How much $$$ do you think it is worth to do the newer truck?


Thanks, D

How long is a piece of string?

A better way to ask for advice is to put the two prices you think you can pay for them and see what happens then.

Personally, I would go for the '11+ every single time.

Thanks to all for just confirming what I had suspected. I bought the 2011 even though it was $14K more money. Bottom line is I think I bought 50,000 miles and a three year newer vehicle. The bonus (clincher) is the 6.7L engine which pretty much blows the 6.4 away across the board.

Thanks for all the input.
