Get you a duramax with and allison and rest easy. Although I ain't getting 14-16 mpg towing about 9K. Its more like 10-11 in ordinary west/north Georgia hilly country.

It seems there is discussion of whether a 4 X 4 is needed. A friend of mine has a Dodge Cummins in a one ton. He ordered the 4 X 4 because of the amount of weight on the front wheels when he is not towing. The rear wheels do not have much weight on them. I have been with him when a little snow can result in him getting stuck. He switches on the 4 X 4 and he is away. (We live in Alberta, Canada.). I have a Duramax. The truck does not seem to be as front heavy as the Cummins. However, for resale, a 4 X 4 is much easier to sell. A used 2 wheel drive is a tough sell "up here".
