New from Colorado

Hi all,

I have had my current truck for about 8 years and it's been great. We upgraded from a travel trailer (max 9,000 lb), to a new 5th wheel (max 14,000 lb) early this year. So I have done some upgrades this year to handle the increased weight, trying to get another year or so in before upgrading to a newer truck.
Adding the 6.0 trans cooler dropped trans temperature 20-40 degrees and is probably the best of the upgrades so far. It's much needed towing in Colorado.
I am looking to upgrade to an F350 sometime in the next 6 months or so. Looking at used 6.7 L models, but they are a stretch on budget. Most important features to me are comfort, reliability and price.
