They want you to go to the dealer for info and buy one...

Im just wondering what the tow ranges are for 5500, 6500, 7500 sized trucks.

All depends on the options and what you expect the truck to do. What brand, engine and transmission options. On or off road? Pick up or delivery. You can play with Cummins Power spec to get an idea of what their engines and gearing options do.

Otherwise, stick with the GVWR of the truck as a starting point. All the equipment will be speced for at least that amount.
