If you are looking for the right vehicle to do heavy towing, then the 2500 SLE, crew cab should be at the top of your list. I thought I was just getting a work truck, for towing a 35ft' fifth wheel, instead I've gotten a Luxurious, comfortable, good riding, good looking and an overall Beautiful piece of Art in my 2500 SLE Crew Cab. This Truck is a one of a kind, I think they all have a Personality of it's own. I'm so glad my wife pick this one, it seems as though it was specifically made with me in mind, because it has everything I wanted and expected in a truck and then some! I don't want to seem as though I'm trying to sell you, so I'm through bending your ear, but I've heard " A HINT TO THE WISE IS SUFFICIENT''. The truck will sell itself, I just urge you to check it out for yourself!
My son calls it a beast of a truck. I pull a 9,000lbs camper with it and have had no problems at all; you can't even tell it's there. The towing package with trailing mirrors and built in brake controls are the only way to go, it makes towing a joy and not a hassle. I haven't had the need to try out the 4WD but winter is close so I�m sure I will. The overall handling is also nice and the many extra's it came with just topped off a good work truck The only negative things would be; It won't pass up many gas stations, towing about 8 MPG. The ride is typical of a 3/4 ton, hard on the back. The brakes are real soft, if that makes sense.

ABSOLUTELY!!!
