New to Diesel

Hay all. I grew up driving older trucks, 68 Ford, 77 Chevy, some Toyotas... I needed something bigger to haul a tool trailer around and have been driving a 99 F250 with the V-10.

I love the truck, but it's time again to get bigger/stronger. I'm looking for a diesel in the $15k to $20k range. I see a lot of 6.0 and 6.4 trucks in this price range here in SE Idaho.

As a first time diesel owner, what should I know?

Thanks for your advice.

Read up on each one and the potential issues of each engine type.

I have not owned, driven or worked on those yet to form an opinion.
