'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.

Cant beat a new version of King Ranch. I have a 2012, I'm beside myself. Think I'm like a little kid again....and its newer. Can never go wrong with newer if you can afford it. Have about 30,000mi, not one issue yet!?!?..........I think somethings wrong. Think Ford mighta nailed it this time. lol.

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.
