Default Welding on a truck frame? AC/DC?

After some reading on some other sites, it is clear that the jury is split about disconnecting the batter when welding on a truck. That is not the question here! There are many theory's why one should or should not disconnect a battery , but not one word about using AC or DC.

The project at hand is a 2000 ford 550, that needs a hitch welded to the frame.I know most pro welders use DC stick, but what about the AC guys , have they had any trouble?

P.S.Do to the nature of the work this truck will be doing I think this truck sould go to a professional welder . That said I would like some others opinion on the subject.

Thanks for reading, looking foreword to your posts.
