Re: 2005 F-250

I'm looking to purchase a 2005 F-250 w/ the 6.0. I've heard alot of good and bad about the engine.

Take a long look at the 250 vs. 350. The 350 costs, depending on the details, around $1,000 more than the 250, i.e., less than 3% more. The two vehicles are almost identical, i.e., if similarly equipped they both ride the same, list the same options, etc., except that the 350 is rated for higher loads.
In some areas higher taxes and fees on the 350 influence the choice.
Clearly either model will pull your boat.
I purchased new a 2000 F-250, and too frequently wished for a 350. I now think of the 250 as a 350 crippled for marketing purposes.
