not on a 1500 a 2500 might do it .
So, I go to the Denver RV show and buy a 7K lbs trailer, Later, I decide to upgrade my TV and decide on the badest boy on the block, a 1500 Hemi - 5.7 - 3.92. Then, I start reading these forums and it's like I bought a Datsun pickup. Nothing but... you can't tow that much weight with a 1/2 ton, you need a 3/4 - one ton, buy air bags/tranny cooler/super chip/. WELL WHAT THE WHAT??? I towed the trailer and believe it or not, it did fine. 65 mph up and down the hills. Yes, your 1500 can tow 8,000 lbs. Just do it safely.
