I just like the safety margin involved. Bigger frame, drive-train and brakes kinda get your attention when your talking about dragging 4 tons behind you.
Thanks for your replies.
Had the eco boost and it pulled , but was hard to stop , it did not take long for me to get rid of it. better off going bigger , We went all the up to 1 ton diesel duramax . And happy i did

The apparent cost to maintain a Diesel is a non issue. I have had 6 half ton Pickups and now my first Diesel. I don't see a big difference, maybe oil change costs a bit more. I save on Fuel so its a trade off. I bought a larger truck but need up with a F 250 Superduty more than enough payload for our next Fifth Wheel.
