Towing a 5000lb trailer I can barely hold 5th at all, but that was driving through the loping hill of Kentucky, and barely getting 9mpg @ 60mph. It's the gears, I don't care what people say, the 3.55's flat out suck at towing! I'm swapping to 4.56 and then I will be able to utilize the 400lbs of torque dodge provided me! No need for a diesel on towing less than 7000lbs, just swap them gears! The Engine and drivetrain performed excellent, except those pesky 3.55's...
