The 99 is 7600# and the 98 was 7300#. Me and a friend asked the same question when looking to buy a truck recently since he found one and it said MFG in 10/98 but was listed as a 99.

Always good to hear that. I towed my TT with my 07 Dodge and the TT was about 6500#. No doubt the truck has the guts to pull the load but the trailer brakes are a must and they basically stopped the truck.
