Have you considered a second vehicle for a tow rig? If you only need the tow capacity every once in a while, maybe start keeping your eye out for an older 3/4 or 1 ton in decent shape just to tow the heavy stuff. I have the same truck as you (with the short box) and if I ever need to pull anything over 5,000 lbs I have a 97 Ford E-350 cargo with the 7.3 powersmoke diesel. That thing is a BEAST and I can haul just about anything I'd even need to with that rig. It's also a handy construction truck, too.
