Towing Capacity

Asked by GuruLTKZ2 Mar 30, 2019 at 09:36 AM about the 2001 Dodge Dakota SLT Quad Cab 4WD

Question type: Car Customization

I have a 2001 Dodge dakota 4x4 quad cab with the 4.7L engine in it, I know it
has a towing package on it becuase of the extra coolers that the engine has,
and I cannot seem to find an exact towing capacity for the truck, it all ranges
from 3600 pounds to 6300 pounds, My parents have a camper that is roughly
5400 pounds, A boat that is roughly 3600 pounds and I have a fishing boat
that is about 1200 pounds, I know it could pull both legally I would think
anyway, I know the engine is big enough to pull the heavy camper also
because my dads truck has a 4.6L engine it it and his truck is rated for 6000
pounds, that is what we pull the camper with. But it all depends on the shocks
that they put on the truck, Help would be appreciated I cannot find any certain
rating for the truck, and on the dodge website it says towing capacity for this
model is not available.
