should I buy a 6.0

I am in the market for another F 350

I have a 6.4 and I have lots of problems right now plus I need a 4 door

I have seen kits from custom diesel for 800 dollars that include tuner, gaskets, head studs, hpop fitting and egr delete

Is this is everything I need to have how to safely tow a 40 foot trailer
Or should I just buy a 7.3

My ARPs cost me like $450 , a tuner is $375, an egr delete is $200ish.
Thats a steal if its a good tuner thats included with it.

With that you should be good to tow that trailer.

Don't buy bulletproofing kits! And how much are you looking to spend on the truck itself?
