I'm sure It can pull it being it's a 3500 and geared Low but your gas mileage will be s*** and it will lug alot you can do programmer it will add power but not much

Welcome aboard mikej - we're glad you joined us! Smart idea asking HEMI folks about the towing capacities before you buy

I believe the towing spec is around 9,500 for that vehicle... but don't quote me. I'm sure there will be some other folks around shortly to help as well.

This link is to your year/chassis... but there was not an option for dually (which would put you close to where it needs to be)

Here is a good Link to help you chose wisely. It's not that it "won't" do it.... it's a better question of if it can do it "legally".
