I would probably look for a F350 with a higher GVWR. I didn't notice that much of a ride difference with mine being beefer. It would also give some extra capacity should you step up to a 5'er. As to the gears I would agree with others that 3.55s and 3.73s are plenty for want you are trying to do.
There are a lot of screaming deals out there on 250s/350s '08 up thru 2010 with less mileage than the one your looking at. You would probably save $1000s while finding a truck with less mileage. '08 thru '10 should be all over the place. Although, for some reason, I don't see as many as I did when I purchased mine used '10 sum 18 months ago. Maybe other people have figured out what most of us know; the 6.4 IH is a damn good plant. Remember to tune it, dump the EPA stuff, change fluilds and filter regulary and you'll be good to go!
