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
