Default anybody using a 460 in a tow vehicle?

Looking for some opinions from anyone who still owns or did own an older big block F series before I make a jump.

I have a 94 f150 as my DD and tow vehicle. Ton of work done to it over last two years including pulling the tired 5.0 and swapping in a fresh 351.

I want a bigger trailer this year and also want to upgrade my truck situation. I like old Ford junk so Im thinkin about pickin up a 91 or older f250/f350 and rebuilding it from ground up. I want a 460/c6 combo.I dont trust these plug spitting Mod motors and dont know anything about diesels.

Just curious how good a older F series with a big block is hauling at least 7-8k lbs? Is it as good as a newer SD? Is mileage complete shit? Would it fall in between a newer 5.4 and Powerstroke as far as pulling power?
