towing with 1500 ram

Unread postby blackd-out-chev » Tue Jul 10, 2012 11:00 pm

Does anyone have much experience towing with a late 90s ram 1500 with the 5.9 gas motor? Thinkin of buying one of these trucks for my work car...but would be nice if it could pull my crawler if i wanted to take the camper as well...then i can pull both trailers and not make 2 trips. I know its not gonna tow like my diesel...but with it being lifted already...am i gonna fry my tranny pullin 7k lb occasionally?

You will blow the motor and trans in that dodge before you ever put a dent in your alison trans... Do an aftermarket trans cooler and or ribbed trans pan to keep your temp down and keep pulling with it
ITS NOT ABOUT HOW FAR YOU GO ITS WHAT YOU BREAK ALONG THE WAY
