I think the general consensus is that the OME HD is a great ride especially if you'll be adding lots of skids and gear and prefer a stiffer ride whereas the OME MD might be better if you prefer a more stock-like ride. Can't tell you for sure as I have never ridden in a WK with either before.
You have the hemi so definitely go with the HD. You need the extra stiffness for the weight of the hemi. You can pick it up from Kolak for a great price. I did get mine from Quadratec but that was because I was in a time pinch and they are 30 minutes from me.
