Talked to the dodge dealer today and the cost to upgrade is 15,000. A bitter pill to be sure, but less expensive than careening off the side of a mountain.
Now you will have ample capacity in the truck to haul what you want and not belong to the "overloaded club". Good luck on the negotiation.

+1 I carry my heavy stuff (tools, spare parts, and propane grille) in the bed of our tv. I love the power of the CTD when ascending and the exhaust brake when descending the mountain passes.
