2005 / 6.0 is "chugging" and "cutting out" past 60 mph

Bought a 2005, F-250, 6.0, 4Dr, SD recently and only drove it to 50 - 55 mph during my test drive. All was fine until I brought it home and drove it to 65 - 70 mph.

It acts like a gas engine missing after 60 + mph. I've already replaced both fuel filters and a mechanic said he replaced the fuel sender in the tank (I didn't see a new one go into the tank but I'm assuming he isn't lieing to me).

1) I can romp on the fuel pedal and there are no issues until 60 + mph, then it starts "chugging" (technical term here) and cutting out like a gas engine missing.

Anybody else have this problem?

2) Does anybody have a recommendation for a great diesel mechanic in Naples, FL?

Thanks in advance for the advice!

Does it happen on flat land as well?
