Good point, though. A different gear ratio would change the rating but I remember when I purchased a crew cab diesel that they were very specific on GVWR ratings across powertrain options, gearing and type of trailer.

There's gotta be someone at Dodge who can tell ya what rating applies to what truck option.
Talked with Dodge yesterday and they informed me that the 06 1500 4.7L 4X4 with 3,92 gears has a GVWR of 7300 lbs the trailer I'm looking at is 6300 lbs so I should be good
