I had an eco and would not put 8k behind that thing. Realistic numbers for me was a 4500# wakeboard boat and I felt it.
For me now as stated, flats boat and that's about it anymore. Not sure I want back to a 1/2 ton but I guess that's a want vs need. Im going to look at the new ram with etourqe.

Ram 5.7 Etorque 395hp 410T 12.7k towing
Ford 3.5 EcoBst. 375hp 470T 12.7k towing
GMC 6.2 420hp 460T 9.6k towing

I have a Ford Super Duty with the 6.2. It is strong and pulls fine. I have a JHPerformance B225 and it pulls it fine. I have pulled a 32 foot TT at about 11000 pounds and it did gear back on hills but all in all it pulled good. 13MPH down the road and 9.5 MPH pulling.

I’ve got a 2011 Chevy with the 6.2L (trust me I know what you are talking about trying to find one and it not being a Denali) and do occasional towing. I’ve done minor performance upgrades but after the lift and tires probably puts me back near stock performance.
The only complaint I have is the trucks normally come with 3.42 gear ratios with 3.73 options out there if you can find one. It’s been several year since I shopped but I believe the z71 package gets you 3.42 while the max towing package (rpo code NHT?) give you the 3.73
I’m not out here dragging 12k around and like mentioned would not do that with a 1/2 ton. For the occasional boat haul, utility trailer with a ranger or pallet of grass and on rare occasion a dump trailer full of demo it does the truck just fine.

That motor is not purposed to be fast or sporty. It's a simple design thats built solely for longevity.
