    The 6.4 is just a piece of crap, I know I have one.

    Other than fuel economy, I have to disagree. 65k miles and only a few warranty items.

    I, nor him dont have the kind of money for 6.0 or 6.4's... too new. I have heard the 6.4's are horrible on fuel and have similar problems to the 6.0's. No thanks. Id much rather buy trucks from before emission took over so basically, 06 for ford, 07.5 for dodge, and 08 for Chevy. Thats when the major emmisions equipment went in, and when the diesel motors went to crap. So it would be a 96-04 truck of any make really. But prices are just crazy!

    Up here the banks use NADA instead of KBB for loans and there's always a decent price diff

    First the 6.4 is not a gas guzzler. That might be part of the problem if you put gas in a diesel motor.
    6.4 is not a piece of crap it a good solid motor that can produce massive amounts of horsepower and torque. Most people bash the 6.4 that have problems you usually don't hear the good. Ford sold tons of these truck. I have a 6.4 that has 50k and no problems, just normal wear parts.

    Gear vendors under/ over drive. Or change the gear ratio.
