The most common answer is never tow over what your vehicle weight is, (GVW) Or ur over weight, truck unable to pull the weight and Brakes won't stop the vehicle. The 1500 is 1/2 ton....period. "half-ton" and "quarter-ton" are old designations that refer to payload capacity (how much you can haul in the bed of the truck) and not Towing capacity (how much you can safely tow). Your towing capacity should be listed in your owners manual and will be dependant on your suspension, transmisison, brakes and rear axle ratio. Towing capacity is always greater than payload capacity, I believe the weakest setups from Dodge in the 90s (318 with short rear axle gears) could still tow 5500 pounds. But check your ownders manual to be safe.
The 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.8 liter engine has a towing capacity of 1500 pounds. The 1500 pound towing capacity is the maximum capacity.
The towing capacity for a 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 318 V8 is 9,150 pounds. The amount can vary slightly for each vehicle.
About 9000 lbs
8,510 for the 1500 8,800 for the 2500 10,500 for the 3500
The towing cap is 9200 pounds with the hemi and that s with your reg cab 1500 2wd
I believe its 7,950 lbs. I have a 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 and that is its towing capactiy. I would imagine its the same for a 1999. Depends what size engine you have.
