06/07 would be my vote, but really once you know the in's and out's of these trucks they're pretty similar. Aside from reliability the 05+ trucks got a lot of updates, better looks, better handling due to the coil sprung front end over the leaf's of the 03/04 trucks, bigger brakes, stronger front axle, etc....

I guarantee this guy could be a truck a few years newer with a 6.0 and still have money left over to do all of the "bulletproofing" to the 6.0, and STILL be ahead of buying an 03 7.3. 03 7.3 is one of the most sought after years, and also one of the most expensive used superduties to buy still... good luck finding one with lower miles than a newer 6.0 and for less price, cause it ain't happening. The 7.3 market right now is just silly. People are asking $15k for trucks with 200k miles on them and rust. That's just my opinion though, and that's not even weighing in the better trans in the 6.0, and the newer body style, as well as the performance capabilities. To each their own. An 03 7.3 would be a really nice truck, but at what cost?
