past 7.3 owner needs help for new truck

Whats the best engine for pulling a gooseneck trailer with anything from cars to tractors on it? I had a 1999 f350 7.3l powerstroke dually but got rid of it and i am looking for a new one like to get one from a dealer but need to find out what year/engine i want. need ALOT of HP/Torque and can do mods for even more.

I was lookin at 2004-2008 f350 4x4 SRW

You'd be better off buying a 6.7 I'd think unless you can find a wrecked '08 and a wrecked '11.

I haven't found anything my 6.0 can't do yet if you do the right maintenance/mods.
