I sold an 08 F450 to buy an 08 F350 dually. The F450 while it could tow a house was over rated to tow what I was towing. I'm with in the limits of the F350.
If you buy an F450 make sure to get the 4.30 gears and not the 4.88 gears.
I got 6.5 mpg with the F450 and the payment was more because a lot of banks thought it was commercial and since I don't have a business, struggled a bit to give me a loan...and the interest rate was higher.
I didn't notice much difference at all between the other trucks. I rarely drive/drove them empty, I have a company car. The F350 is $150 less a month payment.
F450 26k gross rated for 33k
F350 25k gross rated for 27k
