Major towing test
I sold my '99 Ram 2500HD to a guy in Connecticut and met him in Gettysburg to deliver. I towed it with my '11 Ram 1500 on an equipment trailer because the truck was too heavy for a regular car hauler. (7600lbs)
The trailer weighed about 2000 lbs so that makes the gross right at 9600.
I had some misgivings at first but the little Dodge toted the big one about 320 miles without a whimper. The ITBC worked beautifully, it was precise and came on when I needed it. The built in anti-sway earned it's keep too, never saw more that three wobbles and she straightened right up. Managed to get 9.2 mph for that leg, which I thought was respectible.
We then went to Medina Oh. and picked up my new toy, a North Carolina '83 Ramcharger, and brought it home. About 150 miles, got 11.2 towing that one.
Overall, I'm real happy with the performance of this truck, I think she'll do just fine.

Your findings match about perfect with what I've noticed with mine. These trucks have no trouble pulling their weight and more. :smileup:
