Looking to buy new truck

Hi everybody,
I知 in the market for a new 3.0 L
I currently have a 2016 6.7 platinum, I知 looking to buy a 1/2 ton diesel. I pull a 30 foot snowmobile trailer twice a year 400 miles one way then some super short pulls here and there. Trailer weighs 4,200 pounds.
My question is what gear ratio do I buy 355 or 331
90% of the time I commute 20 miles a day not pulling anything, looking to get mileage is why I知 looking at a half ton and better ride but always windy in North Dakota not sure if I知 making right decision. Thanks for any input

Feel free to give me shoot me a DM. I would be happy to make a deal. 3.31 will get you the speed plus the mpgs.

I would to 331. It will pull a 4200lb sled trailer just fine and get better mileage on your daily commute.
