Max tow rating for the 2006 4.7 with auto trans ranges from 6100 to 6650 with the 3.55 rear axle ratio and 6900 to 7650 with the 3.92 rear axle. If by some chance your truck is a manual trans then you are definitely over because the tow ratings for the manual are considerably lower. The range depends on reg cab or quad cab, short or long bed, and 4x2 or 4x4.

For comparison, an identical truck with the hemi has about 1400 more pounds of towing capacity than the 4.7.
