So I've been lurking and actively searching for a low mileage Gen. 1 for a couple of months. I'm coming from 200k mile, 2003, F350 King Ranch Crew. So I missed out on a low mile 2014 Whipple and have been scouring over the ads everyday. Was looking in the $35-50k range. The other night the misses was on her laptop and said why are you looking at the Gen. 1 when the Gen. 2 has all this new stuff? I start with the V8 argument and she says V-what? Long story short she says for $50-60k you can get a much better/newer truck. So that is where we currently are at. So it looks like when comparing apples to apples, the 17's and 18's are very similar. 19's have the better independent suspension but then very similar. So which year is the best bang for the buck and what should I look out for? Hopefully the Gen. 1 guys won't realize I got out of the pen!
