It was linked in the previous page, just have to put a little effort into looking for it...all 20 seconds of effort :-)

http://www.trailerlife.com/wp-conten...Guide-1999.pdf

Like others have mentioned these trucks will tow damn near anything, yeah they are not DOT approved to 30,000lbs like a 2015 dodge, but I bet they could pull it..... stop it, absolutely not :-) Take heed on getting a good tranny cooler and a set of guages are very beneficial. Hope the link helps, yes it was for the 99SD but its identical for the 97 to a couple hundred lbs. I tow 12-14k gooseneck weekly without an issue, truck will stop it just fine too. Disk braked read SDs do stop much smoother, but if you have your rear drums adjusted properly you would be surprised how quick ours will stop as well.

Good luck

I stop my 18K 'train' just fine. I do have disk brakes on the 5er though.
