Yes or No 2008 F250 King Ranch

I love the looks of King Ranch, but scary part is the 6.4 PSD. Found a really nice looking Lariat 4x4 with King Ranch seats in immaculate condition and 166k miles. Carfax shows it was owned 2 years by corporation and next 8 years by commercial. First 2 years shows regular maintenance performed, but nothing for maintenance from 2nd owner of 8 years. Afraid of the 6.4 problems, but willing to do what it would take to make it right (bullet proof).

1. NO!!!!!!!!!
2. There is no such thing as a “bullet proof” 6.4
3. NO!!!!!!!!!
4. At 166,000 miles it is likely ready to blow
5. NO!!!!!!!
6. MAYBE, if they gave it to me!!!
7. Keep looking........no service record for 8 years
8. NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
of course this is all just the opinion of one old geezer.

I'd recommend looking for a '12 or above 6.7. I had an '08 F-450 and never had any problems with the engine but the 6.7 has more power and fewer potential problems. I'd avoid the '08 just from the fact it was a commercial vehicle.
