I'm obviously bias. But I love my 7.3,motor has given me zero issues for the 50k I've had it. Now has about 240k on the truck. Find a clean one near you or cali. Obviously not the most powerful new thing on the planet, but will last and is super easy to maintain.

Looking good so far! You should have bought a 6.7 Ford if you got a 2011 Cummins. I just have to rag on you a little there.

I agree a good tow rig means a lot when going on long wheeling trips. You will love your purchase!
