I read in Motor Trend this morning that RAM, Ford, GM, Toyota and Nissan will standardize to SAE J2807 tow capacity rating established in 2009. It will allow all of us to assess a truck based on a common scale. Which one will have bragging rights will be interesting to see. It is expected to be adopted in 2015. Our 2014 RAM diesels should be identical.

Thoughts on how this might change things?

It will make it easier to compare stock trucks from different brands. That's a good thing. It's still just a baseline, though. The ultimate capability of the truck will still depend on conditions, diving style, vehicle modifications, and common sense.
