That is nutty. Wonder why they did that. It really crushes the ability to tow with it, a Limited with the diesel engine has around 2k of payload, subtract about 500 pounds for people, gear in truck and hitch, and using a 15% pin weight and the max trailer is about 10k pounds. Without anyone in the truck the maximum trailer would be about 13k pounds, well below the 19k " maximum towing " Ram lists for the truck I looked up.I didn't believe you so I had to go to RamTrucks dot com for myself.
What's even weirder is that it shows the "only option" (oxymoron if I ever saw one) for an engine is the Cummins, at a price tag of $9,695.
You would have to be towing 2 axle hay trailers in a road train to use that maximum made-up number towing that Ram advertised.
