this thread should help:
check the sticker on the driver's door jamb. it will list the ratings.
verify that the tires on the truck now, match or exceed the tires listed on the tag.
verify the receiver specifications. i don't think you'll find one for that truck rated more than 7,500 lbs with
weight distribution. if it has one already on it. inspect it and the frame for rust and cracks.
verify the gear ratio (3.55 or 3.92?)
there are a few other posts on dakotas in the forum. use the google search feature on the tool bar on top of the page and search for "95 dodge dakota".
i have an 88 and a 94. post if you have more questions :-)
