Oh sure like Dodge is following the rules...

The heavy duty towing war between Detroit's Big Three has been escalated to a new level. Chrysler's Ram trucks division has upped the maximum towing capacity of a properly-equipped version of its 2013 model year 3500-series pickup to a staggering 30,010 lbs.
That's a hefty increase from last year's 22,750, and it easily surpasses the 23,100 lbs. maximum for the formerly class-leading Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD. The Ford F-350 remains rated at 22,800 lbs.
According to a detailed chart posted to the automaker's media website, one Ram configuration's towing capacity exceeds 30,000 lbs. - a regular cab, long box model equipped with two-wheel-drive, the most powerful version of the automaker's 6.7-liter turbodiesel engine, the 4.10 rear differential and either the ST or Tradesman trim level.
However, a number of Ram 3500 configurations are rated to tow at or around 29,000 lbs., which is still significantly higher than the truck's competitors.
While few owners are likely to test the limits of the 30,000 lbs. maximum capacity, the figure does give Ram major bragging rights.
