I'll let you use my 1/2 ton if you're in nw Louisiana. To try it out.

How many miles do you tow compared to not tow with your rig? Why did you choose a diesel when you bought the 2006? How compfortable are you behind the wheel? just in my experiance if you tow a large portion of your miles and are a nervous driver a half ton may not be a great choice. If you tow 8 times a year and use it as a daily the other 92%, going big may not be needed either.

Will a half ton haul it, think everything will point to yes with the right equipped halftonand many out there prove they can! Think the advice on the fords is sound. There are some nice Chev truck combinations out there in the 1500 series that gives you solid payload numbers. I am a dodge guy, there are 1500 that will tow and the Hemi engine is great but their payloads are soft compared to the options of the other two. Know nothing on the other brands and will not comment on them bad or good, just have no experiance.

I pull Rockwood Ultra Lite 2604ws (loaded) with a Tundra 5.7 4wd and it does great. Thinking about up grading to a Signature ultra lite 4325ss (7300 lbs). Thats pushing it maybe.

Go with the 4325ss. If the Tundra won't pull it you can just upgrade to an Ecoboost.

I'm just kidding- couldn't resist.
