We have been towing the 2003 version since we bought it new. With a shell and "stuff" the quad-cab version weighs in at just over 5000 pounds. It has a Blue-Ox base plate I installed with a bit of effort. No issues related to the vehicle.

Yes. Just follow the instructions in the owners manual and off you go. While in this mode the odometer is not functional so milage towed does not show up. It wasn't as simple as our Jeep Cherokee, but close. Our Dakota has the automatic transmission. We use a "Brake Buddy" aux-brake system and I would recommend that you start the vehicle at the end of each day to make sure the battery is ok.
