Just think of it like the Toyota commercial, where they showed the Tundra pulling the space shuttle. It had zero hitch weight, in fact they had to add weight in the back of the truck, but it could still "pull" it. What they didn't show was that they only pulled it across a bridge, about 300', because of overloading the bridge with the regular towing setup they used for the rest of the trip. But I digress. The others are correct. Stick with a 3/4 ton for towing.

Also remember that the closer to max towing capacity of your truck the faster it will wear out.. as it will be working at 100% where a larger truck will be working at 75%..

Staying with a 2500 series is a good choice.
