the numbers i got were right from dodges website. so not sure where that article got their numbers from.

Doesn't matter to me, i'd take the lower "assumed" towing numbers to not have to worry about the urea crap. all the extra towing isn't going to help you when ur sitting there stuck just idling or going 4mph with ur 16,000 pounds

It gives you a 1000 mile warning, and I am sure all fuel stores will be carrying gallons of it...

If you cant get a jug of it and dump it in within a 1000 miles...

Then you deserve to be driving a dodge ! thumbs lmao
