    Good to know. It looks like you're past your 20k miles. Time to trade it in.

    The engine is way more capable than the transmission, that's why it never feels strained. The ZF transmission can't handle a lot of weight. The Diesel engine, on the other hand, could easily handle a couple of more thousand pounds above what Ram says is the max towing for this truck. This truck's max tow rating is about the same as the Chevy Colorado, a smaller truck with a gas V6.

    Truck rated to tow 9200lbs. Colorado rated for 7000lbs. Maybe you should stick to Hondas?
