Asked by May 20, 2008 at 03:58 PM about the 2001 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: General

I need to haul a small horse trailer (bumper pull) with one horse. Total weight is probably 4000 pounds....Can the v6 1500 do it? I am considering purchasing a 2001 and need to know if it is safe and not too hard on the motor. Thanks!

My '07 1500 with the V6 had a tow capacity of 3,550 lbs. 2001 should be similar as I believe they were using the 3.7 engine in that year as well.
