Default F150 vs DAKOTA

We are looking into buying a new truck. It's main purpose will be towing the Jeep. We have looked at the F150 with the 5.4 and the 3.73 gears. Our other option is the Dakota with the 4.7 with 3.92 gears. Both will be autos. The Ford will be the extended cab while the Dodge will be the quad cab.

My question is, do you think the Dakota is enough truck to pull 5K-6K for up to 8 hours? I'm concerened that the trailer/ Jeep combo will outweigh or control the smaller truck if the wind is bad or hills are too steep. Should we just go with the Ford?
