Yea...the 5.4 sucked. We had two trucks towing cars on trailers back from FL, only difference was, my truck was packed to the hilt with engines/trannies/etc in the back, the other one was empty, just had the car trailer with a car on it.

My 5.9L with 160k and a bad plenum gasket got 12mpg and I could pull right out on to the highway without issue...doing 90mph was no problem.
The 5.4L Furd with 50k miles got 9mpg and did not like accelerating on to the highway a bit and was working hard to keep 80.

That there made me a believe in my Mopar...lol
