There is a YouTube video of a 6.2 towing up a grade from the drivers perspective (I can't currently find it though and I thought it was 10k+). But it appeared quite capable. I went with the 6.4 Hemi because I thought it was smoother and more comfortable than the Ford. I would recommend test driving both just for comparison purposes.

Update - we pulled the trigger tonight and ordered the 2015 F350 SD CC 4x4 DRW with the 6.7 PSD... It just seemed like I would probably be wringing the neck on that 6.2 for too long and hard..
Hope this is a good truck as it cost some major cha-CHING!!!! Now to start stocking up on DEF...

I just got a new 2014 F450 v10 repo truck this month. in the first month with 3000 miles on it I love it seems to average 8.5 miles per gallon, my 6.0 diesel only got 9 mpg. you can notice a difference from gas to diesel but for what I do I have already priced out another v10.

It's also a bonus to have an engine that is as smooth as an electric motor.. The new 3v V10's are great mills... The F450 was just more truck than I wanted...

We hope so. 11 weeks to go as the Dealer quoted us 11-12 weeks to delivery.
I suppose now that MN no longer has a Ford Plant that will have some bearing on the shipping logistics.
