trans. and 5.7 hemi engine. standard rear ratio ?. the truck has factory electric
What would I need to add to increase capicity?
For the new ones the standard capacity is 4,700 with a maximum of 10,600 pounds but your truck will depend on exactly how it was equipped. Springs, gear ratios and tow package will determine the exact amount. Your owners manual should tell you what your truck will pull and if you tell your dealer the VIN they should be able to tell you exactly how your truck is equipped if you don't have the window sticker anymore. Adding heavier springs can help towing capacity as well as changing gear ratios and installing a bigger radiator and transmission cooler if necessary.
