Towing a 2021 Power Wagon

i am considering a RAM Power Wagon as one of our new toys for 4x4ing. For the price point it looks unbeatable for a truck. But for towing I have concerns. I currently pull a jeep jlu weighing around 5k lbs. The PW weighs in around 8k. I have a 10k rated Blue OX AVAIL tow bar on my 06 Mountain Aire running a 400hp cummins. Should I have to make any changes to my tow bar or be concerned about towing such a beast with my rig?


Thanks!

You are 2000 lbs under the rated weight , nothing to worry about . Outside of the extra 3 grand you will be dragging down the road . Get the TRX that Ram is super bad .Also very expensive .

Thanks! I guess I am just concerned about dragging the big truck down the road and especially up hills with just a 400 cummins, no worries?

Would love to get the TRX, but they are price gouging at $100k+. Just seen one at a local dealer for $115. That's more than I paid for my 1st house(3k sqft). Ridiculous!!!

Beside I drive the PW the other day and its way more power than I expected. punched it getting in the interstate it if I hadn't let it it probably would have fish-tailed.... i
