What you really care about is the GCWR, or gross combination weight rating another words what you can stop and pull without burning up your transmission and brakes.

And according to the Ram 2009 chart your trucks GCWR is between 11,500lbs to 14,000lbs. These weights are determined, by transmission, oil cooler, tire size and ply or weight rating, and axle ratio.

Here is the link I found

have fun.

I don't know about the numbers, axels and things, but I can tell you this: I have towed my loaded 23' International with my Dodge 1500 Ram ( Hemi) from Vancouver to Belize and back; from Vancouver to NFLD and back, from Vancouver to Cabo San Lucas and back and now at 10,000 ft above sea level in the Sierra Madres of Mexico. No Problems! Up steel mountain roads across deserts and no problems at all.
