You sound like you have a transmission problem.

Starting out a load from a dead stop, there is nowhere to "kick down" to. You should be in 1st gear.

I suspect that your transmission isn't dropping into 1st gear like it should.

Out in normal driving empty, start from a dead stop and count the shifts. You should notice THREE shifts. 1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd, and 3rd to OD.

When you mash the pedal, the transmission should downshift. If it does not you do have an issue with "kick down."

The F350 is a good idea, but unless you fix your current truck you are going to have a tough time selling it for a fair price. You will have to practically give it away with transmission problems.

No - out on the highway I can romp it, and it doesn't downshift. It DOES shift into lower gears by manually shifting, though.

I DID have to replace the throttle position sensor a few weeks ago. It was causing it to run rough - and curiously enough - was also affecting shifting.

Would there be a chance there is more than one TPS sensor and I've got the wrong one??

But other than not shifting down when romping on it, and not having much power when starting off loaded in 1, everything runs smooth & nice and shifts properly going up hills, etc...

Maybe I'm just spoiled with the two older F250's with manual trannies that I wore out! ha...

That old 5020 IS a load, but I've hauled heavier backroad loads with my '94 F250 with a 351 & manual trannie before...

I never worried about taking off back then - when I let out on the clutch, something was going to move!
