What truck for me?

I am about to be off to college and im in the market for a new truck.. I dont know what to get? I know alot of it is personal preference, but i also need some facts.. I want to pull a gooseneck sometimes.. I race fourwheelers in the CMR and Highlifter series.. I also have a hay business.. I would have up to 20,000 pounds sometimes.. Not alot.. I will want to add a programmer, straight exhaust, and get rid of all the diesel filter BS and etc.. Thanks

if i have to chose one of those i chose the 6.4, i hate the way the ford trucks look, but that 6.4 is a mean piece of hardware, much more reliable than the 6.0, and the 6.7 has been having quite a few problems, not sure if they are all worked out, but the 6.4 can make around 500hp with a spartan, and dpf delete and the transmission can take the abuse... thats pretty outstanding, for a ford.....

Well i thought about the Dmax.. But how are they holding up? I rarely see them.. How does that independent front suspension hold up and the rest of the drivetrain? what kind of numbers are they getting out of them?
