Have you recently purchased a 2002 through 2008 Dodge Ram and you are unsure about the towing capabilities of your truck of the maximum capacity for your factory hitch setup? Maybe you have owned your Ram 1500 since it was new and you just cannot recall how much your truck will safely tow? If you fall into either of these two categories – or if you want to have a list of towing capacities for the 3rd generation Dodge Ram 1500 handy just in case – you are in luck.
DodgeForum.com Site Administrator HammerZ71 has put together a thread in the 3rd gen Ram section detailing the different classes and types of hitch assemblies (for all vehicles – not just 3rd gen Ram 1500s) along with a list of the towing capacities for 2002 through 2008 Ram 1500 pickups.
