You won't have any problems towing with a 1/2 ton. Get sway bars for the trailer it will greatly help out with the trailer on the road. I have a Gmc sierra with the 5.3 if you go with Gm find one with tow/haul mode it helps out taking off it keeps it in first and second gear longer. When you go to buy look for a Ext cab or 8 ft bed reg cab the longer wheel base helps out towing I kinda wish I woudl ahve found a ext cab with 8 ft bed
