Not near as hard as it sounds. Just put Ram in Low Range and put big truck in 5th. Pull it up to about 15 mph, back off on the Ram to get some slack and let out the clutch on the truck.

Only thing I've towed with my Ram so far is a double axle U-Haul trailer. Don't really know how much it weighted, but I do know that it wasn't much that was put in there. Just bulk items that couldn't fit in the bed of the Ram.

A few months ago I pulled 8100 lbs over a total of 5400 kms. Crew Cab Sport of course HEMI and 3:55 rear end. Horsepower was never in question I used an equalizer hitch without sway control and had no problems concerns or even any indicactions of trouble By the way, Las Vegas to Lloydminster ( roughly 2700 kms lots of elevation changes average 60-65 miles an hour ) average 12.4 mpg. I love my RAM!!

Sorry I haven't towed anything at all as of yet.....The only thing that will be towed this year is the lawn tractor to the dealer for service....So I guess that doesn't really count.....
