to run 4500rpms I'm doing about 105-110mph, and a gas will
out pull a diesel if geared lower, and I can chip my gas also or
supercharge it and get over 150 hp and more than that in
torque and it still won't cost more than a diesel. If you take the
extra 7500 your spending on a diesel and stick 7500 in a hemi
it will out pull a diesel anyday

In an unloaded truck, sure. Otherwise not. No gas engine will get the low rpm load moving torque that a diesel engine does.

Your arguement of gearing down a gasser to make it outpull a diesel is stupid.
Same truck, same GEARS you lose. Even remotely close gearing, you lose.

Maybe same gears you'll out pull me, but if you take the extra 7000 or so it takes to get a diesel and stick it in the gas you will not out pull it. That gas will walk all over you. There is a reason there's more gas trucks sold than diesels in the 2500 and 3500s because there cheaper to run and maintain.

A couple years ago I came upon a little car stuck in the ditch on a back road near my place. There was a small P/U chained to it with one tire in a hole and one nearly off the ground. I stopped and then told them that I would be back soon and went to get a chain. So being the arrogant SOB that I am I hooked onto the pick-up and I stayed on the pavement, and pulled them both out simultaneously with my F-350 with 6.0. I didn't even step on the gas just kept it an an idle. After getting it out I noticed that the citiot with the little car had not taken it out of park.
