    For a 2006"......Ext. Cab.....2500 3/4 Ton......4WD.....Long Bed with a 8.1 Liter is the Following,
    With....3.73 Gears
    Max Trailer Rating..........................13,400lbs
    Gross Combined Weight Rating......20,000lbs

    With....4.10 Gears,
    Max Trailer Rating.........................15,400 lbs

    That chassis/engine/gear combo will allow you to tow virtually any horse trailer, car trailer, camper, etc provided you have the appropriate hitch to go along with it. That really is a beast of a tow rig!!
