Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 Truck
Assuming that engine and trans are operating properly, and tires are not over sized beyond OEM, installing a numercially higher ratio gear set in the rear axle may be in order.
I am not a tow guru by any means, but 8000 pounds is a pretty good chunk. Swapping in a 4.10 gear set or even 4.56 should make quite a difference.
Expect to pay $800-$1200 parts and labor for the swap. If your truck is 4x4, you will have to change both front and rear gears so the price is about double.
