2006 or 2008 F350 Opinions

I went back through the archives to about October and did not find this topic. Search was not helpful and I would like some current opinions?

I have the opportunity to buy one of several used trucks. My decision is basically between comparable F350 4x4 Dually Crew Cabs. My question is this: Now that you have lived with your 2008 for some time, which would you buy a 2006 or 2008? Why?

I will be using it for towing a 15,000 lb conventional hitch equipment trailer, plus some 5th wheel horse trailer towing.

To be honest, I am leaning towards the 2008 because it "feels" like a superior truck, but I am concerned about the emissions equipment, fuel economy and cost of maintenance. All of which are tough to measure not owning either. Obviously, my old truck does not get the job done well.

I have had an early 1999 7.3 SC, DRW an early 2003 6.0 SC, DRW and an early 2008 6.4 CC DRW. I have pulled my 5Rs with all of them and each one got better as new trucks do. I liked each of them but my 6.4 is still the best and it has all the toys to make driving it that much more fun. I highly recommend the 6.4 and but the other two did the job and they all put a smile on my face every day.
