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.

thanks for the info guys...I think I would be underpowered.. weight of truck and trailer would be about 18000lbs..even tho I don't like diesels...it might be my only choice..Its a long pull from Canada to Arizona..lfn
