    Without a specific question, it's hard to give a specific answer. However if you're looking for gassers, go with the V10 if you do any towing, the 5.4 is adequate for general hauling and plowing, but is a slug with a bit of weight behind it. 02 or newer will have the better head design with more plug threads reducing the possibility of losing a spark plug. 05 and newer gassers got a power bump for both engines and got the 5 speed trans which is a big improvement over the 99-04 4r100.
