The f250 will be more stable 6.2 will have lots of power be a good tv as a dd a little harder to park and probably harder on gas my f150 2011screw eb maxtow 6.5 bed 7700# is a good compromise between dd & tv we have a Freedom Express 310BHDS similar speck

let's get all the numbers in your other thread first, then look to see if you need a bigger truck. Chances are good your WDH is not setup right. My dealer sure did me no favors on my setup.

Watch your rear GAWR, we have a similar truck(with the 7700# package), and with a 292BHDS we are within a 100lbs of that limit by the time we have kids and a few bikes in the truck. We are thinking about taking the tailgate off to give the back end a break.
