has a tow rating as low as 4600 lbs and a Ram 3500 can have a tow rating as high as 29,170 lbs. Jim

When ever your trailer out weighs your tow vehicle ,the tail can wag the dog,my ram weighs around 9000 lbs with 7500 lbs on the trailer axles.With my big truck,with 4 axles their is 55500 lbs, pulling a 3 axle pup with a loaded weight of 43500, both units handle like a dream, with lots of miles on them...
