You'll love that motor. I had a 2008 6.0 and a 2010 6.4. My current truck is a 2012 F-350 6.7. Ford said it would get 17% better fuel mileage than the 6.4 and by my calculations, it was exactly that.
My cousin builds Ford transmissions and this transmission is one of the best things I find about the newer trucks. They have a new 9 speed (or is it a 10, I can't recall) coming out. I drove a rented 9 speed Dodge van taking wrestlers to the state tournament two years ago and hated it. Too much hunting, so I would expect the same thing from the Ford truck, although you can still lock it out for towing/hauling.
