I agree with all of the above.
You might be able to make one of the newer models with the common rail injection systems function in both capacities, but with a 7.3, it's just not gonna happen.
Also, if you are pulling your dd, you are taking a major risk. I'll give you an example that I witnessed from this past sat night.
Pretty sure was a dd truck, I think a 6.7. Pulling at local fair. End of pull, the front end was bouncing quite a bit, but driver didn't back out. Just before he lifted, there was a bang, and sparks from under the front end. To make a long story short, he broke the stub side of his drivers front axle at the u-joint yoke, and it knocked the ball joints out. Had to be hauled off of the track with a front end loader, and that tire dangling.
Now, some parts can be purchased at almost any parts store on a Sunday, but I'm not betting on Autozone/Napa/Advanced, etc having that outer axle , and the dealer sure isn't gonna be open on Sunday (unless you've got a really good connection in the parts dept).
Kinda makes it hard to get to work on Monday morning, if you don't have something else to drive.
