In terms of total weight when you combine the truck and trailer, I could see where they might say that. Will it pull it like a Hemi? Notta chance!

i know that having more power will tow better but the dodge site i dont think is wrong when it comes down to a reg cab v6 compared to a reg cab v8 it says max for the v6 is 9100 and max for the v8 ranges from 8900 to 9000 here is what i came across and it made me laugh.

You misread something or its a typo. ST is a Trim not an engine. You can get a 3500 ST that comes with a standard 6.7L Cummins.

Assuming you meant a 3.7L V6 vs a 5.7L V8....

120.5" 4x2 3.7L 3.55/3.92 = 3750 lb
120.5" 4x2 5.7L 3.55/3.92 = 9050 lb

Even the 5.7L 3.21 is rated at 7050 lb.

Damn 3,500lb that's pathetic. I guess if you don't tow it's fine but some trailers are 3,500lb.
