My husband and I both drive and pull w/Fords with 7.3s. His has over 300k and mine has over 200k. It is time to try to buy a good used truck with 70-85k on it. I know the ford 6.0 is out of the question. If we can't find a 7.3 or dodge 5.9, what would be best? Thanks for your suggestions.

I don't really know which direction I'd go if you take the 7.3 and 5.9 out of the picture. I'm not a big fan of the Duramax, but I also have not owned one. They might be OK, but I just don't know of anybody that has one with 200,000 fairly trouble free miles on it. One of my criteria for a vehicle is longevity. Hogtownboss said he's had good success with the 6.0 when he puts an EGR delete kit on one. You might search some of the past topics about that, or send him a PM.
