Any trouble towing a fiver with 4x4? (4WD)

I'd love to hear from others who are towing large fivers with a 4x4 (4WD) truck. Have you encountered any problems and wish you had gone with 2WD instead? Hitch height problems?

Specifically, I'm looking at a GMC 3500HD 4WD SRW Duramax/Allison to tow a Columbus Palomino 320RS with a 6-way auto leveler. My hitch will have airbags. Specifically this one with the Holland/Binkley hitch:
25K 5th Wheel Air Hitch

I've already had help checking my tow ratings and such so I know I'll be OK but I've come to find out that GMC has stopped taking orders for this model and so I'm stuck with dealer stock which at this level truck is nearly all 4x4.
