Well what are you towing? I'm assumed we're only talking about lawn care trailer's and equipment here. Ford's V-10 is a great motor, I personally don't own one but Ive seen several with 200k plus mileage and running/towing like new. I'm sure if your towing a 9k lb skid steer in a 14gvw dump trailer and the bed of the truck loaded with dirt or gravel then thats a different story and your probably way over loaded to begin with.
