Default '06 RAM 1500 SLT 5.7L Hemi Towing Capacity

I own an '06 RAM 1500 Big Horn SLT Quad Cab with a 5.7L Hemi and 3.92 gears. I've been unable to get a definitive answer about it's towing capacity. I've even been to the dealer with the VIN and can't get an answer. Does anyone have the answer and not a guess ?
I'm looking at buying a 5th wheel with 6400 lbs dry weight, 7900lbs fully loaded. Pin weight is 925lbs dry. Will the truck pull it ?

Boubou will become famous soon enough

I tow a 5900 dry (6800 lbs loaded, checked at scales and my pin weight is near 1400lbs although the manual said 1150 lbs. i doubt your pin weight is that low, general rule of thimb is 20% of trailer weight on pin.
We drove from ontario to nova scotia and back no problem with the load. The Hemi pulls and stops great.
If the pin is this low, I would not hesitate. Most of the small 5th wheel I've seen down east were pulled by Ram 1500. Go figure.
