This thing is a monster!!!
 
Ok, so a few folks may remember a while back I had some towing concerns with my ram as it is "only" an SLT with 3.55 gears and the 4.7. I first want to say thank you, I used the info and gained confidence and tried it out. We are on a trip from San Antonio to St Louis area with my wife's 09 Pontiac G6 in tow on a 2100lb uhaul trailer, we have about 800lbs of stuff in the bed and luggage in her car along with my wife and three kids in the Ram. Along the way we've hit the snowstorms all the way from OK-MO, but the Ram could care less...It is 4X2 but I've had no problems towing or in the snow/ice so far and we're averaging between 12-15 MPG. I can't express how happy I am with this things performance, and I don't see how I could doubt it again:smileup:

Yup, should be in today...glad to hear you like Scott, I've heard mixed but dang sure lookin forward to the change after Lackland that's for sure. Thank you everyone this trip has been a blast even with the weather hurdles and 3 tired babies. Well except for the Prius drivers who think a Ram w/trailer stops as quickly as their coke can with tires lol.

Ive got the same engine, gears and I assume tires (265/70R17) on my 4x4 Crew. Im hoping it does as well when I get a trailer behind it. I know where there is a 14% Grade that should be just perfect with a 6,000 lb enclosed car trailer for testing. With an 1850 Torque CAT and 65,000 lb I topped it at only 23 mph.

That is excellent! Glad you took the chance to gain faith in your Ram.

glad you are happy with the 4.7. due to the hype on the forums about the hemi, it could seem as the 4.7 is not as good. it still has way more power than the old 2nd gen 5.9's
