95 f250 ext-cab 7.3 will it do the job? (Towing)

New to the form and PSD's
I'm going to look at this truck, 1995 Ford F250 Extended Cab - 7.3 Turbo Diesel
It will be used to pull a 9k lb 5th wheel, will it do it?
I want to be able to pull at 70mph on the interstate. I plan on upgrading the intake and the DP
I say 70mph because I do not want to get ran over or cause a wreck, I have seen to many close calls with ppl pulling at 60mph on the interstate.

I owned a 93 7.3 idi non turbo and it would not pull the 5th wheel up any grade without dropping to 50mph
Thanks

I just pulled 7500 lbs. off my hitch 750 miles on the interstate going 65-70mph. As long as the truck is mechanically sound you should not have an issue. I only have intake and exhaust. But i also have 40 inch tires which doesnt help to tow with. I would also rec. a good chip. Starting to think i need a chip myself.

Should do it fine, but pulling a grade and maintaining speed while hauling usually don't go hand and hand

Well good luck, sometimes the best deals need a little work, my 300k mile stock dually leaked oil shut down when cold, and needed love, now $50 later, air filter, fuel filter, permatex and a CPs later it's a reliable daily driver
