Maybe I said that wrong. I think it tows OK for pulling my jeep or whatever car I have hooked to it. For mine 65 is about top speed any faster and the poor thing sounds like it might kill itself. When I bought this truck I had no intentions of pulling anything with it but things change. So now I have about a year and a half left then it wil be payed off and will most likely be sold so I can get a 3/4 ton with a diesle. But for now I think it is doing fine I tow with it maybe 4-5 times a year pulling the jeep and maybe 10 pulling the boat. If I could do it over I would NOT have bought the 4.7 instead of the 5.9 (I think that was the option). And as far as never pulling with anything else well I have but mostly old POS trucks. my ram pulles better than any old POS chevy 1/2 I have ever pulled with but not even close to my old 92 chevy 3/4 ton with the 454ci engine.
