My TV is a 2011 F250 with the 6.2 gas. I have beefed up the suspension with a set of Super Springs so I feel pretty confident on the GVWR. The higher rpm to hp/torque vs a diesel rig is/was a concern. The truck pulls my 6k (loaded) Rockwood 282TXR and you really don't even notice it is back there. My goal is to buy a Puma 351THSS. A full 12k fiver (estimated) behind that truck will probably be a completely differently story. With the trailer at 12k this puts the GVCWR 2k over Ford's recommended rating (19k) for my truck.
Not certain yet but I may be trading for a diesel rig. I too am on the fence regarding make and model. I have been a ford man my whole life but the Duramax/Allison is intriguing though.
The big question is I tow 6-10 times a year. This makes owning the diesel as a daily driver questionable and a tough decision to make. I will know more once I actually put the new Puma behind my 6.2 and put it through its paces. Right now, I consider my Super Duty 6.2 one awesome truck.
