I have an '06 Dodge also, 2500, 5.9 CTD. Mine is 4WD and the rating on my truck to tow is 13,800, you might be a little more with the 2WD. I had a 5th wheel, dry weight was 8,800. I figured I was around 10,000 loaded up. I had the Jacobs exhaust brake and air bags installed and it towed quite nice. I was averaging around 10-11 mpg towing, which was a nice upgrade from the 7 I was getting with my '03 Hemi.
