Default F150, which is best to buy.

I'm looking at two F150s and need some help to determine which one I should go with. I'm upgrading from a 2000 4cylinder Ranger, so anything should be an upgrade. Here are the two trucks.

2009 4.6 2V V8 F150, 77,000k miles. Two owner good carfax. $10.5k
2012 5.0 V8 F150, 160,000k miles. One owner, great carfax. $9k

I like the power (towing power) and newness of the 2012, but afraid the mileage is too much. Anyone know what these engines are good to?

Welcome to the site..

Both good power plants,, I'd go for the lower mileage thou. depending on what i saw. Any service docs available on either of them? And of course grind on them prices.. Carfax only shows what's reported, not always what's been done to them. Ford can run an Oasis Report (no cost) off the VINs and will show anything done under warranty/campaign.. Any doubts, have them checked out. Have any images?
