Torn between the two 6.7L's need opinions

Posted (edited)

So I'm in the market for a new truck and my question is that my neighbor runs a 2011 Cummins with around 200k miles BUT he takes very very good care of his truck (it is his office so I don't blame him) and he is willing to sell it too me for a decent price around $23k I also found a 2012 6.7 powerstroke with 60k miles and it's priced at 33k. I'm just not sure which truck is going to be the most reliable. I do tow a large boat for half the year and I have a 25' flatdeck trailer that I don't haul as much any more but still use occasionally. What would you guys go with?

I would try to avoid the 07.5-12 6.7 Cummins for emissions reasons. Poor mileage, hard on the motor, etc. It’s also getting harder to delete. 
 

I also wouldn’t ever own a 6.7 Furd, but they are seeming to hold up. Hard to do any maintenance yourself though, as they really need the cab to come off for any decent motor work. 
 

If it were my money it would go towards a 14+ Cummins.  2500 vs 3500 will depend on use, and transmission desire. The frame/suspension is also greatly improved over the 03-12/13 frame/suspension.

I agree, I would go with at least a 13+  6.7  the emissions is much better.

 

 

The Fords seem to be doing pretty good, but I don't like how cramped it is under the hood.
