Default Loaded Trailer weight

Greetings

From the Dodge towing web site and the '08 Ram brochure, here are the maximum loaded trailer weights listed from Dodge for your 2008 Ram 1500 truck. You did not post whether its a reg cab, quad cab or a short box, long box or 4 x 2 or 4 x 4so i'll post 'em all:
The 5.7L comes with auto and 3.92 rear 14,000 LB gross combined vehicle weight rating
reg cab SB, 4 x 2 9,100 LB
reg cab LB 4 x 2 8,650 LB
reg cab SB 4 x 4 8,900 LB
reg cab LB 4 x 4 8,650 LB
quad cab SB 4 x 2 8,750 LB
quad cab LB 4 x 2 8,500 LB
quad cab SB 4 x 4 8,500 LB
quad cab LB 4 x 4 8,300 LB

Pay load gross vehicle weight ratings are
reg cab SB, 4 x 2 GVWR 6,200 LB, hitch 1,460 LB
reg cab LB 4 x 2 GVWR 6,600 LB, hitch 1,610 LB
reg cab SB 4 x 4 GVWR 6,350 LB, hitch 1,480 LB
reg cab LB 4 x 4 GVWR 6,600 LB, hitch 1,400 LB
quad cab SB 4 x 2 GVWR 6,700 LB, hitch 1,620 LB
quad cab LB 4 x 2 GVWR 6,700 LB, hitch 1,390 LB
quad cab SB 4 x 4 GVWR 6,700 LB, hitch 1,380 LB
quad cab LB 4 x 4 GVWR 6,800 LB, hitch 1,250 LB

I'm not a pro, but I believe that anything over 6,000 GVWR is class IV but I will defer to experiance.

Regards
