Is there a large difference in power or get up from the 3.42 and 3.73?
I know the answer but have never driven a 2500 to know the all the torque translates to the gear ratio

No ball for gooseneck as of yet, but "yanked" (proper word) a 2-horse bumper-pull similar to yours with 2 big warmbloods (~1500lbs each) in it the other day. Had to keep checking back to see if I lost the trailer. No sweat for the 3500 and 4.10s. Smooth from the start to the stop. Exhaust brake works pretty nice.
Never did like warmbloods! Too high spirited for me, and they hold their heads too high! Sort of like this Cummins...but I'll break her in. I'm liking the MPG so far. Still trying to figure out the best way to go on a gooseneck set-up myself. I talked to the Long fellow in Lowell, AR. He said in about a month Curt will have a very nice gooseneck and 5th set up where everything is under the bed and hidden! I think I'll hold out another month or two. I'll keep everyone posted.

Honestly, I can't really tell that I have the 3.42. The power is amazing. I noticed the other day, while climbing a long 5 percent grade or so and towing my bumper pull trailer, it never shifted out of 6th gear. She just kept moving right along. It would go from a stop just fine...I'm just easy on pedal I guess. I've only got 1300 miles logged, so I'm still babying it a bit!

2012 or 2013? Don't think you can get a 13 CTD with 3.73. They come with the 3.42 I think?

Nope. It's a 12 I'm after. It only has 23kms on it.
Still brand new

True, that's why I asked. My buddy has a 2012 diesel with the 3.73s.
