I tow a 2701SS with a 1500 4X4 Quad Cab Dodge that has a 355 rear end and a Hemi. My transmission shifts on steep grades or long grades. In East Tennessess, every where I go is up hill in both directions. The truck actually does fine. I average 9-11 mph and have dropped to 8 and actually got 12 when I hit flat ground. It all relates to how you drive. I try to maintain 60-65 mph and let everyone else be in a hurry. A 392 rear end would be better for towing, but I would lose the everyday gas mileage or non-towing mileage. No more than I tow, I'm okay with the slow pace and mpg. If I were traveling for weeks, I would definitely look for a diesel T.V.
