Duker - glad to hear you're in good health and finances. I stand by my original post - camper, truck, daily driving, all the cubes (400) and mild cam. I didn't mis-speak aboutt LSA as someone mentioned previously. I would not go with anything tighter than a 112 LSA. You need a stump puller, not a high rpm red light racer from what you described in your original post.

Your 110 LSA low lift cam isn't a deal breaker, but is this cam new? If not, then don't use it. Also, I know very little about your heads.
Now, depending upon your SCR, you can also tune your intake valve closing. Being a heavy vehicle, I would either keep the compression at 9.0:1, or use a later intake valve closing to keep detonation at bay.
