I would take the V10. Had has an 11 with the 6.2 gas. The first gas pickup in 25 years for him. He likes it. We have a new F550 as a rescue truck with the v10. Excellent setup.

Do NOT buy the 6.4, they have had all kinds of problems with that engine. Check some of the Ford forums and you will see the issues they are having!!

Close actually, almost pulled the trigger on an '07 Dodge.

I actually bought an '07 Chevy 3500 with a flatbed. Found it up near Omaha. Actually went there to look at the Dodge and happened upon the Chevy by accident. It's in really good shape apart from 1 dent on the passenger side fender.

It's a Work Truck trim but has 4 wheel drive, the Duramax/Allison combo and a mid-PTO...and, only 18,000 miles!! It's pretty much ready to go. I built some sides for it and painted them yesterday, now it's just a state inspection, registration and lettering and it will be put to work.

Here's a few pics as it was when I picked it up, I'll try to add some more once it's finished.

Nice truck! I am a ford man personally and I agree with you to stay clear from the 08 6.4. If i had anything other than a ford, it would be a chevy, oh and good thing you stayed away from the dodge too Ford and chevys have been much much better to me and most people i know

Here are a few with the sides on. Still need to tie them into the frame and get some stake pocket sleeves to reinforce the structure. I built in a small section that swings open on the passenger side to load grass through.
