Looking at a new truck

Any pointers on what to buy (year models)?
I am wanting the 6.0L and the Tow Command system but am not sure what years it comes on.
I am leaving my Duramax for a Ford to help lower my payments and want something that is going to tow my 35' 10900 lb TT as well as my Dmax does.

Suggestions please, just keep the heckling and badmouthing of the Dmax to a minimum. I am not brand loyal and love my DMax but have no qualms about Ford or I wouldn't be looking at them. I just won't buy a Dodge!

Haulin..........WELCOME ABOARD!!!!!!!!

The tow command was intoduced in the 2005 model year.I bought my 05 in the fall of 04 (as soon as they came out) and I absolutely love it. I have had several trucks for towing in the past including a chev suburban with the 454 and also a couple PSDs with the 7.3 and this truck handles a trailer better than any of them. I am also not too brand loyal. We also have an 02 Monti SS that has been great but as far as trucks go...........you couldnt take my Super Duty from me.

Welcome to the other side and good luck!!!!!!!!

Have an '06 F350 Dually (see garage), pull a 37' Everest 13,000K 5W empty. Handles like a dream. Have both Tow Command (integrated trailer brake controller, and Tow Boss (heavier suspension, 4:30LS Rear End). Doesn't get fantastic (relatively speaking) milage, but I feel 12MPG for a 4 Ton Truck pulling a 6+ Ton 5W more than reasonable.
