I am not sure exactly which one is stronger but Id say just get the zf 5 because than you dont have to make your own crossmember and the zf6 just has a very low 1st gear

I say ZF6 because it will give you a better gear range and they are newer. Normally newer transmissions are designed to handle more power. Just my thought. Not to mention you hear a lot about high powered PSD and cummins using these transmissions.
