Going to be in market soon for a newer truck. Definitely going to be a F350 Crew Cab 4X4 SRW with under 100k on the odometer. I want good honest advice, opinions, feedback about what year and motor to get. Should I get a 2008-2010 with the 6.4? Or spend a few more bucks and get a 2011 to about a 2013 with the 6.7? Would like to stay under 30 grand but would go to the mid to upper 30’s for a 2011 or newer. I do plan on doing the deletes/ bulletproofing and having it tuned. Which motor/trans combination is the best, most powerful, durable, and reliable with those mods?
i love the 6.7.
never drove a 6.4 though. but the guys i have talked to all said the 6.7 is much better than the 6.4

Steve Price was that kind of person.
Godspeed "window licker", the short bus will never be the same with you gone.
My next door neighbor had a new 2012 F350 Lariat CC LB 4x4 that he really liked but he hated the payments. He decided to sell it and ended up with a '09 F350 Lariat SB with less than 50k miles. I asked him how he liked it, and his answer was that he likes the interior better as it has more toys than the '12, but that the fuel economy is terrible compared to the 6.7. He says it is getting not much better MPGs than the '03 5.4 F350 CC he had before the '12. He does around a 1000 miles a week, so he may be more sensitive to fuel economy than many. I notice how much louder the 6.4 is than the 6.7 was when he pulls up and especially when idling.
