I've pulled almost 18000 lbs (yes, I know I was overloaded) with my stock 2012 3500. Power is not an issue, just the weight and being able to stop it safely is.

Yes I would say stopping is important. The extra weight does not leave a whole lot of "OH SŁ€'T" time. It's easy to say ah...I'm a safe driver!!! Till that knuckle head who thought he was a good driver spills his coffee and forgets to stop at the red light. Then it's a whole lot of screaming till you hear glass breaking.
