making the switch yes or no

I'm thinking about trading in my ram 1500 5.7 hemi 8speed trans 3.21 gears on a 6.2 f250 6 speed 3.73 gears. I tow a TT 31ft 8000lbs loaded. Do u think I will notice a difference in stability towing and also a little more power? I'm doing it for the safer travel. I just felt like my 1500 got thrown around with a long camper on the back. Do u think this is a good swap or wasting my time

With a TT of that size, I think you should've done it along time ago. You will not be disappointed.
