    Legally, no. Can it do it? Yes. Depending on the style of your truck will determine how much you can pull with a goosneck. Minimum, according to the books, for a diesel is 12,500. Thats with the crew cab long bed. Maximum is 15,500. Thats with a regular cab long bed. Both are with 4wd. 2wd will hold a few hundred more.
