if you are getting new, get a ford f450, heavier duty than a 3500 from any maker better brakes, just generally better for towing than a 3500 even Rams "Heavy duty" 3500 how far and how often are you going to tow this weight? that will be a big determining factor in how much truck you need, probably gonna want to check local laws or laws in the state or states you will be towing to see how they go about determining if you need a cdl
whatever you do dont get a 2500 with a 6.4 being disappointed will be the understatement of the year, even though they do get so called "50 mpg" while making "800 hp stock without a blower and 1600 ft Ibs at 800 rpm"

Ford needs to do a lot of work to the F-450 if they are going to keep up with the new 3500 Dodge. The exhaust brake and transmission work together a lot better, and they rate it to haul 30,000+.
On a trailer that heavy I'd rather get a 4900 IHC with the DT466 and know I could control the load.
