Crew cab Is nice but the only one in my price range is pretty rusted out... Tons of ext cabs, really like the look of the exd cab and the long box is good for dirtbikes. But the ext cab would be okay for fitting friends in right?

buy the one with less miles. your friends can make due or drive there self.

get a vin check with care fax and get a oasis report done with the vin from fthe local ford dealer.

2008 got a new flex pipe installed. S-b intake, 4in dp back exhaust, gear head tunes All deletes done now.
flow pro hot pipe. CCV mode.

2013 dodge charger

friends can make due by themselfves but sometimes it makes since to get the 4 of us togther in one vehicle. 2 bikes in the bed of the truck and 2 on the trailer and head to the track rather than taking multiple vehicles. i assume the backseats are usuable but are not too comfortable for long rides?

The miles are ok, not great but ok. It means that truck hasn't spent an entire lifetime in the shop which is good news. However you might want to find a different place to purchase a truck. Those prices are insane, in wyoming where 6.0's are not popular I paid 16k out the door mind you for a fully loaded 07 f350 crew cab lariat, and I mean fully loaded with only 96k miles. The trucks you describe would be between 8-12k here. If you're 17 and drive a lot like any 17 year old I would try and get one with low miles. Just my opinion, and screw the friends they don't pay your bills, get what you want and let them figure out where to sit.

2007 CC, Lariat, 6.0L, TreadWright guard dogs, straight piped out the back, egr delete, blue spring, 6.4 banjo bolts, high idle mod(bcp), bulletproofed, SCT Livewire TS with Drews street runner(under development for high elevation), Innovative, and Vivian's tunes, ww2.

Yeah I know 139k Isent low, but compared to tbe 215 on the other one, I'd rather go with the 139k one, sure I imagine im going to be driving a lot, but I can't find any low miles for under 18k. I'm looking to spend 13 so the 2005 seems like the one I want to look into more, I want a crew cab, but I love the look of an extended cab, worst case is I buy extended cab pay it off and then gets crew cab when I need to upgrade.

And the one we're i put 19k I meant 12k it was a typing mistake

i would take a scanner when you go to look at both and see which out weighs the other.i mean the lower mileaged truck could of been ran hard and the higher mileaged truck babied.if you do not know these trucks for the love of god take some one with you who does so you do not get ripped.you are young and have a lot to learn so every dime will count make your money work for you.i wish you luck and let us know how it turns out.
