Cummins vs. hemi

I am in the market for a 3500 4x4 cab and chassis crew cab. I currently have a 08 model with the cummins but I have a question about the 2011 vs the 2010. I hear the 2011 will have the urea additive and that may be the way to go because of more horse power and better mileage? I also am wondering if I need to look at the hemi , we haul about 5000 lbs. daily. The hemi set up is 6-7000 less, and cheaper to work on and .45 a gallon less when buying fuel. Any input would be appreciated and if anyone has the specs. on these three engines h.p. and torque and mileage that also would be greatly appreciated.

Those are the choises with gas or diesel, diesel cost more to buy new and repair, gas makes less mileage and does not perform as well over time. For diesel to be a cost effective alternative you will need to keep the vehicle for 6 years and drive 50,000 miles a year.
