Didn't think about cost comparison to a 3/4 ton. I don't think tow ratings for the half ton will change much just because of the diesel addition. Fuel mileage while towing would be better than the Hemi and the cost of the truck would obviously be less than that of the 3/4 ton Cummins. The 3.0L Diesel in a half ton would also have better mileage than the Cummins.
