I pull my 295 with a 2014 Ram 2500 HD 6.4 hemi and it barely squats at all when hitched. We have taken trips thru New Mexico, Colorado, and Arkansas without any
issues. I had a 3500 diesel pulling a Sierra at about 13,000lbs and I think the 6.4 has almost the same power (my opinion) and I saved almost $6000 getting the hemi.

The Hemi is a lot lighter than the Cummins and that weight savings in the engine goes straight to increased payload. So as long as your comfortable with the pulling power of the Hemi vs the Cummins, and it sounds like you are, then that increased payload will really help out with less squat.
We had a 2008 Ram 2500, CTD and pulled a 26' Cougar X-Lite and it pulled great but it did squat a bit. When I hit the scales I was over the GVWR for the truck by about 500#. I was fine with that but we decided to get a larger 5er, 2015 Mountaineer, and sold the Ram and got a 2011 F350. Pulls like a dream and no squat. Haven't hit the scales yet but I think I will be close but OK on GVWR
