I hate to tell you but any smaller gas V8 engine like GM 6.0 or Ford 6.2 trying to pull a truck weight of over 8K, plus your trailer of 10,000lb just isn't going to get you there anytime fast. You definitely need the 4.30 gears in that truck and yes your fuel mileage goes down empty but stays the same when loaded though. Dude, this is why most people buy diesel trucks. The only gassers that pull well (still not as good as diesel's are the old Ford V10 and GMs 8liter which both are extinct now do to thirstiness. Its goes back to the old saying you get what you pay for. Go buy a 6.7 diesel of GM or Ford and i promise you will smile more.Report it
