I am going to keep my old one and give it to one of my workers . I dont tow anything I just have a 75 gallon diesel fuel tank in the bed to fuel my machines. Once in awhile I will tow a bob cat or a asphalt roller but that is once in a blue moon.

Diesel has better milage and will run for 100's of thousand miles. Based on the fact that you're getting rid of a relatively new truck, diesel sounds like it is not necessary for your needs. Get another Hemi unless you plan on towing more in the future.

Ye gads am I the only one who thinks the new Toyota Tundra is fantastic? I have no need for a pickup, almost wish I did so I could buy one.

I tow my boat with a 1995 Toyota Landcruiser (the inline six cylinder engine) which does the job like a champ. I want to buy a new one but this one runs and looks so great and is so trouble free I just can’t make the purchase.
