Outdoorsman2012 is on a distinguished road

I own a 1500 with the hemi, 3.92 gears with 6spd, and tow a 7500 tt, I have a combined weight of 13,700. I didn't see what you planned on towing or how much weight. The 2500 should have a better cooling system for greater weight but doesn't really have a better gear ratio especially if looking at 8 spd. If your towing a low profile trailer that would also change a lot or if looking at 5th wheel trailer as the aerodynamics are just better. There are a lot of guys out there towing 10,000lbs with the 5.7 but I don't know how much I would like it especially if the truck itself weighed another 2000lbs or if in hilly conditions
