I am leaning towards sticking with a 3/4 ton. But its been so long since we have even paid attention to new trucks especially gas engines, was wondering what every was liked and disliked about the motors and just over all ratings for the trucks themselves.

My opinions so take em for what they are worth.
Just because you have an engine that has lots of power does not mean that you the truck will handle pulling a load. if all we worried about was horsepower then we would have mustangs and chargers with hitches on the roof. You need to look at suspensions, axles, transmissions and such.
Half tons do not have the same rear end set ups as 3/4 tons and might have the same engines in some cases but cant carry the same loads.
