I'd think if you want to go with a stock/modified stock, you should be fine as long as you have the right engine and tranny size, tranny cooler, and tow package. Oh, and don't forget the brake controller.
The smaller 2-horse goosenecks are probably actually safer with a half-ton than a bumper pull.
I have a 5.7 V8 GMC with tow package. I've hauled a 4 horse stock horse before easily (but wouldn't put 4 horses in there!)
I've heard both extremes, I've had people tell me never ever do a gooseneck with a half ton but then others recommend it. I personally prefer goosenecks for pulling purposes.
