I have had both , had a 88 F350 4X4 cab and chassie 5 speed 4.10 gears with a custom 9 foot flat bed , i pulled a 28 foot gosseneck . I bought it well used and abused with 68000 miles on it . Had a ton of problems with it and even though i bought it used Ford was looking for this truck as there was a massive recall on it . Well a local Ford dealer did all the recalls and even a new paint job . and the problems were still there . After six or seven computers a bunch of sensors it was starting to be a good truck and why i was lucky on fuel mileage i have no idea maybe it was due to the fact that i had changed the timing gears on the crank and cam and went back to the pre 72 cam timing or what but truck only i would pull down over 15 mpg with the truck weighing in at 7500 lbs empty when the trailer was hooked to the truck and it weighed in at 7500 i would drop down to 12-13 then with a full load of either tractors or implement and that being maybe 4 to six transport disc's or maybe four semi mount plows and four disc's and what ever else i could stack on top of all that a couple thousand pounds of ft. weights and a set or two of duals it would go down to 10 MPG. and yes i kept records . at times i was changing oil twice a week due to the miles i was running . and at times i had way more on then i should have . I put 287000 miles on that truck . Now i have a Dodge with a Cumming . Would i go back to the 460 ?? not on your life , are there things i don't like about my Dodge you betya (1) i plum do not like the fact that it does not have lock out hubs (2) plum hate the ft wheel bearings . (3) don't like the 4.10 gears in mine . But do i want a gasser NOPE , i can work on mine with out a scan tool i do not have to change plugs just change oil and filters . Will my Cumming beat a 5.0 Mustang Nope But it gets down the highway just fine and PULLS the little hump and bumps great . I don't run all over four states anymore looking for sales and the most i pull now is the bale wagon or fertilizer buggy with six ton in it and as long as i can top Teegarden hill at 50 with six ton in forth gear i am happy. Your Hemi will not do that. And neither will a 460 .

Repeat after me- "THERE IS NO 'G' IN CUMMINS"- OK, sorry, got that outta the way.

What year is it? Dynatrac has locking hubs and servicable wheel bearings for 94-up trucks now.

And if it's got the p-pump (Bosch P7100, 94-98), all it takes is an Allen wrench and you can have that kid in the Mustang spending big bucks to outrun you again.

It has a P pump and it is a 95 . Yes it is tweaked as far as i want , yes it will fog for skeeters . Yes i can get MORE but then ya need to SPEND more to upgrade this then that . I am happy with where it is set and that is all that matters to me . It will twist 3 grand if needed but for the most part she never runs much over 22-2400 . And only has 151000 miles on it , and i intend to still be driven it till the day they plant me . Then the War Dept and dig a big hole and put me and my Goat in it and back fill.

So your saying turn the screw on the pump and that truck will run the 1/4 mile in 12.60 at 112mph instead of 17.50 at 75mph, wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, Chuck

Of course that depends on how good the kid in the mustang is, too.
