Here it is.....

This is the 2012 Ford F350 diesel SRD King Ranch I purchased. Going in Tuesday for the Ford 5th wheel prep, (the under bed pucks, not the additional wiring harness). Truck already has camper and tow package from factory.

Another vote for the F350! These are made to haul tough. Just recently helped a buddy install the new fender flares and backrack headache racks for kayak mount on his 2004 F350. It has been hauling their 41' toy hauler without major issues.

That actually turned out to be a bonus more then a hindrance I thought it was going to be. Driving solo I'd rather have the 44 but with 4 bladders the 26 gallons worked out well and kept us all more fresh.

Any of the big 3 3/4 tons' would do the job well, and anyone of them can be a lemon, but you'll be happy with the Ford. Enjoy the ride!
Still worth considering the upgrade to the Titan 50 gallon tank. I love mine. I still stop every two to three hours for a break but I can tow 550 miles without a fill up. Unhook at the end of the day and go fuel wherever I want

Last week I had the factory 5th wheel and goose neck prep package installed. Ordered the package from fordaccessories.com . The price was the same as what the dealer quoted me. The installation was much cheaper. I was quoted $300-$400 by the dealer. The fordaccessories.com website had a check to pay for installation which varied by dealer. It cost me $208. The dealer kept asking me if I was quoted a cost for installation. I kept telling them it was already paid. What should have been a 2 hour job, (left the truck all day), ended up taking 3 days. Shame on them. I didn't buy the truck there, but they lost a new customer.

My first diesel was a 2011 ford f-250, 6.7 powerstroke. Fell in love with the power, both empty or pulling our fifth wheel. Got 18 plus empty and 12 towing, compared to 6.7 mpg with 6.0 gmc gas motor. After 4 yrs, traded for same truck, a 2016. More power and a little less fuel milage, but pulls hills like a dream. Set at about 63 mph cruise control, and forget it, and the 2016 has an engine brake...... nice

My manual says I have engine braking in the 2012, but it doesn't have a seperate toggle or switch like I've seen in my buddy's RAM. I can feel the exhaust brake going down hills when in cruise control empty or when I used the foot brake going down hill. At least I thought I did. Unlike other vehicles I have had with cruise control, this truck will try to slow itself down going down hill. The only other time I had that happen was in my Volvo with interactive cruise which would maintain speed at all times.

Definitely a popcorn and beer thread but it's all a personal opinion.
We had a 2011 F-350 DW Diesel and wanted to upgrade in 2015 and we couldn't decide between Ford or Dodge so we purchased a GMC. Problem solved and we love it.
