I've pulled with both motors but trucks were different configurations 06 Chevy ext cab short bed 4x2, 06 Ford ext cab long bed 4x4. Not one felt truly stronger than the other. I owned the Ford and borrowed the Chevy while my ford was getting new bedsides. Own a V10 now and notice very minimal difference in mpg but much more towing power. Only reason I sold the 5.4 truck was because it was turning into a rot box. I think you can get a better price too.
The 5.4 was a fine truck and towed what I needed it to. Would I buy one again? Sure.
I also invested in a dually. Wow, much more stable towing platform when my 14k dump trailer is fully loaded!
