Well, gas has the better bouquet; sweet with a suttle, wafting ambiance. While diesel is strong enough for a man, but made for a woman. (Did I say that right?) Lol.

Hey Whitewolf! What's a Yooper like you still doing in the U.P. with the winter we're having? This Troll is getting ready to head for Florida and the sooner the better!!!

What am I doing? Mostly shoveling snow.

Run south? If I could I would, but I can't so I won't.

Naw, believe it or not, we moved up here from central Illinois 20 years ago, mainly for the seasons. Well, that and a job.

Been to Florida a couple of times. Nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there. We have friends that live there year round, and I don't understand how they can take the summers. It gets much over 70 deg and I start crying like a little girl.

I had a f350 manual then an f250 auto and went straight back to an f350 manual, all diesels. I felt no ride diff in the 250 vs the 350 but the 350's were far better when towing , stopping and payload. I towed a 4400 lb deck boat with the first f350 for about 4 years. I didn't realize the brakes had quit working on the boat trailer ( surge brakes ) until hooked that boat to a suburban and it pushed me into an intersection!! from your original post it sounds like you need a slightly bigger truck to tow with but that would be impractical for a daily driver. so if you don't want 2 vehicles.....pulling and daily driver....... then I would go gasser 1/2 ton again and add some bags and prob a better sway bar too. the factory sway bars are not that great compared to most of the aftermarket ones. imo

I started the hobby with a 1/2 ton Silverado gasser and quickly upgraded to a 3/4 ton sierra gasser for stability reasons. I spent a little over 5 years with that truck. I always did want a diesel, so when my Sierra started giving me trouble I upgraded to my first Ford which also happened to be a diesel granite I purchased a 2001 f250 in April of this year but it only had 26,xxx miles at the time of purchase and it has the infamous 7.3 engine. The truck tows like a dream and has power to spare, I plan on getting at least 10 years out of the truck if not more. NOW WE JUST NEED SOME WARM WEATHER TO DO SOME CAMPING IN!

good truck ( yes I am biased lol ) with a few updates even better and more mpg's. did the steering on the gmc feel tighter than the ford while towing?
