Not sure what ford to buy any information would be great

Right now I have a 2007 dodge 6.7 and I want my next truck to be a ford agin I used to have 7.3 ford and then my last three trucks have been a 5.9 and two 6.7... I don't know much about the new fords but I'm looking for a 2008 and newer I just like the way they look.... Also I kind of like the f450 but I'm not sure. I tow a 36foot box trailer every day so I will be using the truck for what's its made for

How heavy is the trailer would warrant wether you need a 450 or a 350, but the 6.7 and 6.4 fords a very powerful capable rigs, but are looking for a brand new rig or used one?

I'm looking for a used one under 100,000 miles.. I work for a house hold moving company so the trailer weight is always different and we don't stop at scales Much it's just when I'm crearious... But I have been 22,000

Well if your doing a lot of hauling your should just go the f450 then, I'm not sure on which is better but the newer it is the more amenities you can find, but the 6.4 and 6.7 can both be a powerhouse if you want and with a few mods both can be very reliable, you would have to check the 6.4 and 6.7 forums to pick your poison of what to look for when buying used and which is a better power plant

If I were you I'd stick with the cummins. Proven motor unlike the 6.4's that have radiator and hpfp issues. Along with valve train problems, cracked up pipes, cracked pistons etc. Not to mention the cluster the emissions stuff is if you have to leave it stock.

The Ford 6.4 had problems. . .if used you need to be sure that the problems have been fixed. Dodge has had very bad front end problems and currently has a recall for transmission trouble. Ford 6.7 is a good machine with newer models best.
