I wouldn't put that much trailer behind a single-wheel truck. The 2 extra tires add a lot of stability.

And the hemi's going to be worn out by 100K with that kind of load.

The hemi will be fine, the offer the 6,4 in the 3500 also, as long with it in the 4500 and 5500, I know a lot of guys around here that pull fifth wheel trailers with the 94/02 series dodges with the 5.9 gas and they were only 220hp, and the one guy I know that pulls with one pulls a 4020 and a 60 John Deere to tractor rides with it, never seems to have a problem. And that hemi is 200hp more, it'd handle it fine. For the money he'd save buying a gas he can spend more on fuel. As the one post says, between the gas and the diesel the guy had the figured 3 cents a mile difference. That's not much you save that on gas vs diesel price.

You don't even have your numbers correct. The. 5.9 gas had 245 hp and 330ft lbs torque. It could pull any load the hemi could but it peaks out at a lower rpm so it's highway performance wouldn't be as good.
The 5.2 had between 220 hp and 230 hp depending on the truck.
Gas motors don't do the job like diesels. My farmer friend is like you, loves his gas jobs. That's why towing as he does, he buys a new truck every 2-3 years cause the motor is shot by then.

It'd pull it but not as easy as the hemi, the new gas motors are made to run rpms, my gas trucks aren't shot I just like new body styles.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see yeah considering you will be getting below 10 mpg with that load, i dare say as low as 6 but that is just a guess, the diesel would get considerably better gas mileage as well as last longer. anybody who thinks a gas is gonna last very long behind that load is crazy, also whats your point with the whole john deere 4020 and the 60, i have seen cummins with a john deere a, g, b,4010 and a golf cart on there. and i dont know what fuel prices are in other areas but yesterday they were within 10 cents of each other

Around here I figure a diesel has to do over 5mpg better than a gasser to work out at the pump. Running empty, probably not. With that much load, a diesel would cover it. We don't know how much towing the OP plans, just the weight, so diesel vs gas could work out either way for him.
