You're going to have the same engine, and same rear suspension. You will gain a solid frt. axle. Depending on the gearing, not really going to tow much different.

yeah, but you'll have the 5spd, which I much prefer for towing. it will put a tad more power to the ground, being that it's more effecient, but for me, the real prize is I get to pick the gears myself, leaving it in 4th in hilly areas, 5th for straights, and downshifting coming to a stop

If you're looking for more stability in towing, look for a dually. Otherwise, newer trucks are the way to go. My 08 Cummins 2500 feels much more stabile pulling than my 97 F350 ever did. I cant see the point in trading for an older truck with the same rear suspension and motor.
