Since both trucks are 2500s with the same motor, my guess is there is not much difference, if at any, with the stock suspension. The GRAWR may be different given the difference in model years.

In any event, I tow a 5th wheeler that weighs in at about 22k lbs loaded. I hate to say this on this great forum but I do not use any of my Rams to tow it but rather I use a 2011 Silverado diesel 3500. I did add additional leaf springs and added Hellwig helper springs. As you can imagine, the truck rides smoother with a load than without given the suspension set-up but it rarely is driven without a heavy load. If I were you, I would get additional suspension support to help with load and sway control. You probably know this given your a Cummins guy but of course extra suspension does not increase the load your truck can take but does help control the weight.

Good luck.
