    I couldn't PM you, so I had to post here to reply. I also had to shorten it to 1000 characters so let me know if you have more questions.

    I came from all the diesels, my last being Ford 2014. My last 6.2 kind of let me down on the towing performance. It didn't take me long to realize that if I wanted any towing performance the 4.30 gears were a must.
    Coming from the towing power of diesel like you have, you will likely be let down with the 6.2 unless you go for the towing gears. (4.30)
    I tow over Santiam Pass a lot from Albany to Central Oregon. My old truck would need 2nd with my fairly light 8000lb toy hauler. Same trailer with my new truck 3rd gear did the job and I actually felt some power band around 3500 rpm due to the new lower torque curve and gears.
    Gas is just so much cheaper and user friendly anymore. I pretty much just drive around town and don't do a lot of hwy driving.
    For work I tow a Cat 239D CTL with trailer weighing about 10k. This new truck pulls it around town and from job to job so much better than my last 6.2. The gears make all the difference for the 6.2 when towing is concerned.
