I would recommend using hyperutectic pistons http://www.kb-silvolite.com/page03.htm from Keith Black, instead of forged pistons. The hyperutectic piston is stronger than a cast piston, and less expensive than a forged piston. A forged piston is stronger than a hyperutectic piston. I think a forged piston would be overkill for the engine you describe. I would also recommend using a moly rings with the hyperutectic piston. If your on a limited budget, then regular cast pistons with cast rings will work well, as long as you keep the hauling and towing to less than 6,500 lbs gross vehicle weight. Besure to include the loaded trailer as part of the gross vehicle weight.
