Patiently Waiting for the JGC Diesel-will it indeed tow?

Just joined, but I have been following the posts on the diesel ordering dates. It seems to keep getting pushed back for various rumors. My dealers rep still thinks June is on target to order. Our biggest concern is proving this rig can pull our 3 horse trailer. We pull our trailer full of hay, tack trunks and two horses, along with our 5,000 camper on the back of our Dually with no problems and get 12 mpg. I figure its hauling around 20K down the road. The JGC would be just pulling the trailer with 2 horses, empty tack room and fairly balanced with a Weight Distributing hitch. We would be just at 7200 with the trailer and two horses. My last JGC sucked, it was a 1999 lmtd, and could not even pull a small camp trailer. It had lots of issues and we dumped it before the 36k warranty expired. I am really hoping for a great upgrade. Our 2004 Liberty was rock solid, and I just gave it up to one of my daughters. Anyone towing similar weights on their 2013 JGC with a V8 that could comment?
