My current options I've been looking at are a Tundra/Sequoia 08-10, Avalanche 02-06, or a Silverado/Sierra 03-06 (07 Classic).
They all have a towing capacity above my trailer's gross weight (7700lbs) and meet the reliability and comfort criteria.
The real question comes down to, is it worth the extra markup for the Toyotas?
Because I'd love to have 10k lbs towing with a supercharged 5.7 pumping out over 500Ft-lbs. But is it worth the extra $$$?

I would say no i tow a 10k lb 5th wheel with my old ford f250 it dose just fine even towing up and down the sierras its not fast but but it dose the job the original owner bought it to tow a.5th wheel and thats what it did since 87 and its still towing today the turdbo is realy nice to but it will never keep up with that toyota but how fast do you want to go with that kinda load the fuel mialage might be better with the toy but the differance in price can buy alot of fuel im on the road alot and im always seing chevys dead on the side of the road with big trailers a few fords yotas and dodges all newer rigs all towing abou5 5he same load as me i just keep chugg that old freight train on down th3 tracks even pulling 10k up a 9% grade any good maintained truck sould do you good but dont kill your self getting a newer truck cause there not any more reliable than the older properly maintained ones but if you feel beter about a newer truck then go for it just stay away from the ford 6.0h no or any newer ford or chevy diesels
