Yes, it depends which diesel you have in it and what kind of hitch/5th wheel setup you have but you are looking at 16,700 as a max as Ryan has suggested.


i know the question is a old one but,the factory towing spec is 8k for a 4wd dually crew with the 6.5 and auto trans, manual trans is 7k(6.5 not rated for 5th wheel) if it had a 454 then the bumper pull spec is 10k and 5th wheel is 10.5k with 4:10 and 12.5k with 4:56


Again i know this is lod but when you say bumper pull you actually mean the ball on the bumper or a trailering hitch and reciever??
