    Should I upgrade my tow vehicle with gas or diesel?

    Currently have the tow vehicle in my signature but I am thinking of going newer. I never tow my fiver as it sits on a permanent site. Should I upgrade to a newer used diesel or look at a gas engine this time. I sometimes tow 10000 pounds with my work so keep that in mind when responding. I have looked at the 6.4 Ford but the mileage claims scare me. My wife likes GM/Chev products. I have looked at the 6.6 and the 6.0. I love my Dodge but the ride is not so comfy. A friend has recommended the 6.7 Cummins. If you were in my shoes what would you do?

    I would stay with the 2008 Crossroads Cruiser you already have. Can't get much better than that

    not sure how you are going to tow 10000 lbs with a car ,boat ,jet ski ,or a motorcycle.Out of your options listed you should probably go with the only one that will even tow a trailer, the 3/4 ton truck!

    have to apologize read your post wrong! if you are considering a ford dont buy anything diesel unless it is a 7.3 powerstroke all their newer models are JUNK!You are better off to stick with your dodge.If you want the best get a chevy with a duramax and an allison trans. this is the best option available currently.
