go to this website & follow all the prompts for your vehicle

http://www.dodge.com/bodybuilder/year.pdf

look at the tire sizes & other things too, when you get to the load, trailer towing part

like in my '09 ram 1500, i can put only 1570 pounds in the empty truck, that is counting people, beer, cameras, etc
then i can put 6,700 pounds on the trailer hitch, that is everything, empty trailer, beer coolers, empty cans
