Narrowed it down to 2 trucks

A 2012 F-350 Lariat Super Duty $21,990 and 201,100 miles or a 2008 F-350 King Ranch $20,800 and only 167,000 miles. Both are SRW and nicly equipped like I want.

One side of me says take the 2012 because of engine and just newer, on the other hand the 2008 is 33,000 miles less and IDK. Maybe its the gasser side of me saying less miles are better but does it really matter.

Both are crew cabs with leather and almost all the options. Both trucks are southern trucks, no damage, no rust one or two owners, no accidents and both have a great service history.

What would you choose and why?

Assuming they are both diesels, stay away from the 6.4. Not a great engine. The 6.7 is the better choice. Just make sure you keep up with the maintenance, especially draining the fuel filter!

Same here i would stay away from the. 6.4 and go for the 6.7. That is a no brainer in my eyes.

2002 f250 7.3 4x4 256,000miles. Bone stock other than hutch mode and edge evo programer I use for gadges most of the time. I also have air bags on back for towing.
