Here in NY, the CDL rules are as follows:
1. 26000 gvwr you need a cdl
2. 10,000 lbs trailer you need a CDL

If your truck has a gvwr of 25,999 and your trailer has a gvwr of 9,999 you don't need a cdl. The important numbers are 26000 and 10000, don't worry about the combined weight. So if the f450 has a gvwr of 15,000, but trailer is 10,000 or more you would need a cdl for that combo.

Facts are wrong. The 6.4 is the replacement for the busted and broken 6.0. The 6.0 has the head bolt issue. I have the 2008 450 with the 6.4 and love it. Did my research before buying. Hated the 2011 and newer models.

If that is all the better your advice is I'd keep it to yourself.

An F450 @ 15k GVWR towing a 11k GVWR or less doesn't need a CDL.

Combine weight rating certainly comes into play here as that is when the 10k trailer rule kicks in.

Yes is was the replacement, more reliable no, easier to get hp for cheap yes. I think the saying goes when a 6.0 breaks fix it, when a 6.4 breaks replace it

have you looked at 6.4's lately there are lots of them for sale with over 150,000 miles 150,000 miles in 4-5 years means reliability to me, heck even over 80,000 miles in 4 years means that truck started every time and worked all day...20,000 miles a year is nothing to sneeze at. i'd like to see a chevy or dodge do that. oh wait they issues too, and don't get driven or worked because owners are scared of breaking them....or they are in the shop, fords have some issues, but most of it is fixable by deleting the the egr and taking the dpf and cat off. end of story.

And you can get into a dump trailer for a lot less money. Plus the trailer is a lot more versatile than the dump.

My long range plans are to go with an F250 and a dump trailer. I run a two man crew and do not plan to expand beyond that.

I wouldn't, but someone must. That's not the point though. RSK said a Chevy or a Dodge couldn't do 20,000 miles/year, which is completely false.
