Question Best Tow Rig for the $$$

What has worked best for you? Im in the market for a work truck/tow rig, nothing less than 3/4 ton and I dont have a brand preference. I will be buying used so try and keep that in mind.
Gas/Diesel, Auto/Manual, 4/2wd..Brand..What are your thoughts?

i love my 04 6.0 powerstroke, they get a bad rap from people not maintaining them proper, or chipping and towing on high tunes. the 5 speed auto works grea,t gets 14mpg with 26ft enclosed, and theres awesome deals on them due to age and stupid people blowing them up. Mine has canned tunes, always tow on the stage 2 has 4in exhaust no cat, and the intake I love the ole girl. The 05-07s are better and can have the intergraded brake control and better head bolts. If your only towing then the diesel is worth it the mpg and overall maint. is better. The 4wd is nice but 2wd might get better mpgs and less things to brake.
