Default In the market for a 2009 Ram 1500 - 4.7L? 5.7L?

I am in the market to sell my Wrangler and pickup a used 2009 Ram 1500 Quad Cab. I am finding the 4.7L models to be more in my price range over the Hemi equipped. I am looking for some real world information between these two engines.

What kind of milage are you getting out of your truck?
Have you towed with it? How much? How would you rate it's capabilities?

I will, rarely, tow a 3400lb car on a trailer through north Texas (not much for hills). I want to make sure that whichever I do get, will pull that without stretching the trucks limits too far.

Any other comments on what to have/avoid/etc on a 2009 are welcome! I am looking to know the in's and out's of what I should want to have in a new-to-me Ram.
