You don't say what year your truck is, but I have owned three 2500 Rams, 1995, 2000, and 2008. All of them had the factory tow package option.
All three of these trucks did not require a weight-distributing hitch for a tongue weight of 500 pounds or less and a trailer weight of 5000 pounds or less. I suspect that's true for your truck also, as long as it has the factory tow package.
