4.7 vs Hemi

Hey guys i'm looking at getting a commander here in the near future. I currently drive a 03 dodge ram with the 4.7. i have quite a few mods to it to give it some grunt. i'm not really looking to do very many performance with the commander, more 4x4 stuff. does the 06-07 4.7 have enough grunt in the commander? keep in mind i plan on getting the RR 2.25 lift and 255/75/17 bfg m/t's and possibly a brush guard. i know the 08' has 310 hp but the 06-07's are much cheaper than the 08's right now. also, what 4 wheel drive system would you reccomend for 75% street and 25% off road use? thanks

Honestly, I drove both the 7 and the 8 and didn't feel much difference in the power, so I bought the 7 4.7 with QT2 and banked a bundle. I'm very happy with it.
