As do the axle ratings which IIRC is an older standard.

And extremely capable of it. I tow within my vehicle limits and don't need a 1ton dually to drive safely.

Ouch, 1100 lb payload...

I thought the loaded Ram 1500s had the lowest at around 1200. Learn something new every day.

My payload is 1590, but I have a "mid-grade" Ram and I have to be careful about loading my truck.

Your truck should still pull it well, but if you have an accident and there are lawyers involved you could be in trouble FWIW.

Can I Hall It

Pal 216 sums it up - look at the door pillar! Notice his Pay Load 1193, that includes driver, occupants, what's in the bed and tongue weight (LDH doesn't matter - it just transfers weight somewhere else), so subtract your tongue weight 793 and he could carry 400 of other stuff. This is a great example of what happens with quad cabs (where do you put the kids?). By the way the GVW 7,200 if you go to a CAT scale be sure to have your hitch on board, it is payload. The difference between CAT and 7,200 is your actual payload.

That payload number is by far the most shocking part. I had an almost identical 2012, except 2WD, and it had a CCC of 1,79- (don't remember the exact number).
