need recommendation for new tow vehicle

Appreciate recommendations of a replacement tow vehicle for our Ford 2008 6.4-liter Power Stroke diesel F450 King Ranch. We haul a 36' Heartland Bighorn or Bigfoot truck camper.

If you like new stuff, 2015 has some great changes, if you don't like the dealer, hate visits/warranty/being the first to try something new, 2014.

'16 F450 6.7L Lariat Ult. .:. Tow-Rig
'08 F350 6.4L XL .:. Gone to a new home
Alradco .:. H&S+GH .:. RCD .:. PDR .:. S&B .:. aFe .:. Absolute .:. Fluidampr .:. Toyo .:. Black Rhino

Enjoy horrible service, sub-par quality and made in China product? Mishimoto is your one stop shop!

Thanks everyone. Will be checking them out.

Oil dipstick tube broke off on the my last trip north. Oil all over the place and on the trailer we towed.
Covered under warranty after paying the deductible and 3 days w/o the truck. Still love the truck, not the time spent at dealerships across the country

I'd wait for the 15 if you do a lot of hauling, the new Exhaust Brake will come in handy.
