2006 Dodge Ram 1500 Towing Specifications

by Justin Cupler

Dodge began manufacturing trucks back in 1917. From 1933 through the 1950s, Dodge used an emblem of a ram's head on the hood, but the trucks were not officially named the Ram until 1981. The Ram name has now become a staple in Dodge's line up. There are a total of six trim lines available in the 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 lineup: ST, SLT, TRX4, Laramie, Sport and SRT-10. Each of the trim levels have different towing specifications.
