They do have a lot of get up and go. My older 5.4L Lariat Screw I gave my son when I bought this one was quite doggy by comparison. We are towing about 9200 lbs in with the 312BHDS loaded and it pulls like a dream. You know it's on there but it has no trouble in acceleration or braking and we live in the foothills of the Ozarks. I do have the 3.73 rear-end w/ locking differential. Absolutely no sway or wagging. It tracks like an arrow (once it was properly adjusted).

3/4 ton RAM w 6.7 diesel.

I just like the idea of having a TV that weighs as much as my TT. Helps avoid the tail wagging the dog problem.
We pass through the mountains often on our trips and having the diesel grunt plus braking is wonderful... if you can afford it.

Happy Camping

I set out hoping to get the Ecoboost, 6.5 bed with HD payload. Problem is I had a limited # of trucks. Looking specifically at new 2015s in 2016. I wish now knowing Ford is going to discontinue the 5.0 in favor of the V6 I would have gotten it. However a good friend who is a Ford GM says to hold out a diesel half ton is coming.

hopefully soon an F350 is on our cards, just wasn't in the 5 year plan with retirement about 6 years away. I may try for a used in the 2010-2013 area in two years.

Probably a bit more truck than needed for now, but we are trading for a FW in 2017. First TV was a 2013 GMC 1500 5.3, second is 2015 3500HD Duramax, Dually, CC, 8' bed.

That's a nice rig. My old work truck was a 2007 GMC, Towed well for what it was. New tech is amazing. Back in 05 I worked for a Ford dealership for a short stint. Half tons are pulling nearly as much as diesels now! (not safely, nor do I recommend haha)
