I pull a 24' enclosed trailer with a 2600 lb car inside with no problem. I also have a weight distribution hitch.

You don't have the 3.21 axle ratio do you?

I have the 3.92 axle ratio and I could pull down my house if I wanted... I also get about 17.5mpg (most of my driving is on the highway)

As I said before. 3:92s should be standard on 4x4s. People would be alot happier with thier new Rams. This is a mistake Dodge continues to make. Sales people don't know the product they sell, so they over sell the half ton Ram.

Problem is that the 1500 is made for comfort and mileage. If you wanted good towing you should have gotten a 2500. I know the springs in the rear can't be as good as the leafs like the previous gens had or the 2500 & 3500 would have gone with leafs also.
