What is the most I should consider towing with the above vehicle? Truck has the hemi, is a crew cab, and has the max towing package which includes the 3.92 gear, HD trans cooler, and larger trailer tow mirrors. I'm looking at either a 3 place or 4 place all aluminum trailer. Will probably house 121-137 track sleds. Any advice would be helpful. Mike

I wouldn't hesitate to tow to the max published towing rate for that truck. The Hemi is a good engine, the Ram is a stout truck. With the aluminum trailer, I am betting you won't be close to the max weight. Flat terrain will be easier on the truck than the mountains, so where you tow will make a bit of difference.

I know that, but taking into account I'll being driving up to the UP in Michigan, and winter weather conditions and the weight of trailer and sleds, where do you think is a comfortable and safe load?

I've made that trip many a time!
You will be fine!
I run about 70 with my set up.
I have a 98 GMC Cab over with the 3.9 Diesel and only 2 wheel drive.
I tow a 29' 4 place that is almost 7 foot inside height and Steel!
I can also put 2 or even 3 in the truck!
I also carry 100 gal of diesel and another 60 gall of Prem in an on board fuel cell with 12v pump!
Im HEAVY and I still get 10mpg unless Im into the wind.

You will be fine just don't run 90mph!
