Hey guys. I know this question has been asked many times. I recently bought compact loader/backhoe and trailer. I bought it out of state and when I went to pick it up I borrowed my friends 2016 2500 HD cummins. The thing is bad ass and I thought, dammit, maybe it is time for me to bite the bullet and get a new truck. But then the check engine light came on, and I had to ad DEF and all these electronics... I got back into my IDI (see sig) and I thought, forget a new truck, I don't wanna deal with all that crap and pay 60K for it! anyways, what I want to do is buy another IDI, preferably a crew cab F350 and set it up to handle towing the tractor. i am getting lazy these days and was leaning towards getting an auto tranny. however, seems to me that most people prefer the ZF-5 for towing. so my question is - C6 with a GV unit or built E4OD? I am not a fan of the non locking TC on the C6 but I am a fan of its simplicity and lack of electronics. if you could have the ideal auto tranny for towing what would it be? or should I just sack up and get a ZF?
