Diesels and muddin performance

I'm sure this is prolly a real rookie question but, (since i know nothing about diesels) How do diesels perform in mudding and more swampy kind of off roading? I am a unleaded type of guy and dont really mud anymore, (to rough on the truck enjoy mountains better) but one of my friends is looking into a 2001-2004 F-250 super crew diesel. Any info about diesels is much appreciated even about those years F-250 as well, Because like i said diesels are a new type of beast for me i can work on my mo-gas motors. Anyways thanks and i will standby for info.

Hoffman out.

Don't think the motor matters, what matters are the tires, lift, 4x4 vs 4x2 and a good winch to pull out the stuck jeepers, etc.

OH and its more expensive if you break something.

But then again, I really don't do muddin, so what do I know?

I'm not much into 4 wheelin but I don't know any reason why a diesel wouldn't do well other than they way a ton and they are more expensive to fix. I have noticed though that it seems to me anyone I've ever talked to into 4 wheelin uses a gas engine truck

Check out the info in the tech forums,,,

2003 - 2007 6.0L Power Stroke Diesel:
http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/forum107/

1999 - 2003 7.3L Power Stroke Diesel:
http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/forum31/

The 7.3 and 6.0 are completely different motors. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages.

You probably can post your questions in both of those forums to find the info you seek.
