Wildcat 317RL and F-250

Hi, I'm looking at a 317RL. I currently have an F-150 eco boost but am looking to upgrade to an F-250. Are there others on the forum pulling this unit with an F-250? If yes, is it adaquet? Gasser or diesel? I'm leaning toward diesel. Gear ratio? Thanks for any input.

my #`s are pretty close to learjets, but I tow with a diesel, if you live in a flat country a gas would be ok, we also have a 2014 F250 reg cab 4x long box 6.2 it is ok on the flats but put any weight on her or any hill and foot to the floor to climb

Thanks for the replies. We have now changed our mind and are looking at the Silverback 33IK... Will see where that goes

I have a 2014 Wildcat 317RL that is pulled by a 2012 F250SD Diesel and I have NO issues with either trailer or truck at this time. The Diesel is the only way to go you never know if you will get another trailer, the diesel will handle it.
