Thanks for the information regarding the upcoming Cummins capablities.

You are right that 22k maximum towing, at this time, would be greater than anything GM or Ford offers in their 2011 3500 and F350, respectively. If memory serves me right, GM and Ford max out 5th wheel towing both at around 21k lbs. I believe Ram is now at about 17.5k lbs. I do not recall what each truck has for conventional towing. Nice to know in any event that Dodge sees the need to keep-up since trailers and campers, for example, are starting to weigh more than in previous years given medium duty trucks have higher capablities now.
