You can make it work, but that engine will be very strained and it is well over capacity. I pulled an 8000 lb trailer once with my old V6 GMC in a pinch, but it wasn't too happy.

Towing capacity is 3500 lbs for a single cab V6 Ram. I wouldn't recommend towing your trailer with it. Also, the V6 likely doesn't have a transmission cooler or anything.
