200tdi 110 towing capacity vs 110 v8 ?

I live in the USA and have the opportunity to buy a TDI or a gas V8. I am getting into the business of woodworking/deconstruction of old homes so I'll be pulling lumber mostly. Which one can tow more and what is the capacity of each? thx so much!

Both can handle about 7,000 lbs behind them. The diesel will have a bit more grunt low down but to be honest I would rather have the gas motor.

You don't say which v8 but my 110 with a Range Rover Classic 3.9, intake carb cam and long tube headers has some guts.

In the end though I do my towing with the Expedition
