Newb towing capacity question

Hi there...I have a 2010 Mountain edition 4 door with 3.21's, and have read that the towing capacity is only 1000lbs...the stealership told me I could tow 3500lbs with this set up. I'm assuming they are lying b****rds! LOL! Anyone know if I'll need to re-gear, and are 3.73's okay to go to...just planning on towing a small trailer at some point, but this is my DD, so not really into anything drastic.....yet.....
