I narrowed it down to a diesel, like the Duramax/Allison combo in the chevy (powertrain i think is the most important) but like the cabin of the F250.

Decided to go gas as I could not see the extra expenses of the diesel. My father-in-laws dealer is goin to get my 2012 f-350 Lariat crew cab short bed first thing Monday morning from another dealer. Shouldn't have any problem with payload as it being @3800 lbs. can't wait to get out and start using the whole setup. The ecoboost was enough engine just not enough truck.

Subscribing. I have a 2010 F250 and am considering the 6.2L gasser next. I love diesels, and i have a great 6.4L that gets the good mileage, but I dont care to own it after the warranty expires. I trust it, but now that delete kits are hard to come by, I 'm not interested in going past 100k.

If i can find happy 6.2L daily drivers that tow 10,000 pounds and are exstatic, I'll start considering a 6.2L.

Please keep us posted.

My personal opinion, you made a good choice. Let us know how it works out for you.
