The specs on the Ram are

1998 5.2L Auto
Single Cab, Long Bed
3.55 gearing, 2wd
Class IV hitch

What can I tow or not tow with this setup?

You can safely tow around 5500 Lbs, your entire drivetrain and powertrain can pull or push around 17,000 Lbs but don't try to do it cause you will serious screw up your transmission.

I tow a 32' Travel trailer it's about 5K lbs with my ram van, it has the same setup as you, 5.2L 4 spd autp and 3.55 chrysler 9.25 2wd. It performs well, just make sure you turn OD off when you tow.
