What engine, trans and axle ratio?
He would probably want Load Range E tires if they are not already.

Hopefully this link works to the 2500 towing charts. For the most part, 10K is about the max for the 5.7 with the 3.73 regardless of cab configuration.

Plug the VIN into this decoder (LINK) and then click on the Tech Specs tab to see the tow rating.

If you do not know what axle is installed, first click on the equipment tab, this will tell you what was factory installed. Then the tech spec tab will let you know the max load for your axle.
