IDK bout that I have the first 4.7 at 235/300 and although Im not saying any v6 could have the low rpm grunt of a v8 even a low powered one like mine. But I def see a v6 at 290/260 being adequate especially to save the money over the V8 option if you use your truck for light duty hauling. I used to work for a commercial refrigeration co. and a short bed 2x4 w/ the 3.7 in a 1500 was adequate even when loaded w/ all the tools and everything. I mean it was slow as hell but it worked
