Default Who is towing with a 1/2 ton? Opinions?

Curious who is towing with a half ton pickup, what your setup it: trailer, vehicle/loads being towed, etc.

I'm looking to buy a truck this summer, and want to keep my options open.

These days, 1/2 tons are getting to the point that their capacites are similar to 3/4 tons for just a few years back. The nissan titan sports a Dana 60 rear with optional e-locker. The F-150 can be had with a sterling 10.25 rear. Most of the 1/2 tons offer at least 300, up to 350 or so. Stronger trannys, bigger brakes, etc..

Realistically, my towing load will be 5000lbs with my toyota, and 4000 lbs with my flatfender, which isn't all that much.

opinions? pics? Details? Glad to see them!
