the dodge 1500 has rear coil springs and has a low tow rating, the 150 can tow up to 11500lbs with the max tow package which comes with the 3.5 twin turbo v6. i took my tractor to a pull tues. tractor weighed 7600lbs + the weight of the goose-neck trailer. ran 70 mph up rt 81 to harford, pa., a lot of long hills and never went below 70 and never had it to the floor. i can't believe how good this thing tows and there is almost no engine noise in the cab , nice. give me a call for more info, chuck ps, the mirrors pull out for towing, when in the tow-haul mode the trans shifts down automatically when braking and more

Oliver77 never seen a Dodge pickup with rear coil springs. My 1997 1500 with 318 engine and tow package handles my trailer with two tractors on it that weigh just under 9000lbs total with NO problem, at 70+mph on the open four lane road.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Dodge went to coil springs on their 2008 model RAM 1500, IIRC. Give or take a model year. Might've been 2007 or 2009...

Yeah, though, if you can get the rig up over 70MPH, you're fine because the engine is running in its power band. Can't do that around here... Too much traffic. So you're in 3rd with the engine roaring away at 3200RPM... Plenty of power but you need to wear earmuffs in the cab to hear yourself think.
