The MPG's gained from the V6 is so minimal it makes it pointless to not go with a V8. I assume that the V6 is a somewhat popular option for fleet 1/2 tons but it doesn't make much sense for a tow vehicle, IMO of course.

Agree with v8. There are plenty if 5.3 L out there. You won't be disappointed.
