Nice choice of truck and motor. I'm a ford fan myself and wish more of the serious pullers around here would run them. The aftermarket support seems to be alot better for bowties and the cummins so thats what you tend to see the most of.

I'm a dyed in the wool diesel guy, but I'd probably go with a gas motor if I was building a pulling truck too.
The diesel class is fun to watch but in the stock classes it seems to just be a matter of who has the most money to buy the bolt on parts with. Tuners, exhausts, injectors and whatever else you can get away with. Its not until you get into the big times that you get to see trucks that are really built, and there just aren't many folks who can afford to play that game.
The gassers on the other hand still require a good bit of tuning to really run good and you get to see alot better competition across the classes around here.
