I had a 2012 Ram 1500 but wanted a bit more power and MPG while towing. Looked at the 2014 Ram 1500 diesel and I left scratching my head. My 2012 Hemi was a crew cab with 4wd Big Horn and towed...

I believe the tongue weight limit for the 1500 is 1100 lbs. Towing with a 1300 lbs tongue weight is nuts. If it fails, ain't nothing going to stand in its way.

I was towing a 6500 lb dry trailer with a 2012 3.55 gears. Limit was 8400 lb, but it sucked pulling it. Acceleration was brutal and mpg was about 8 doing 60-65.

Starting in 2014, Ram trucks have to meet the SAE J2807 Towing Standard. There are specific criteria that most of the truck manufacturers are now submitting to so the "best in class" towing crap can...

I had a 2012 Ram 1500 and my experience towing with my 2014 could not be any different. The 2014 runs WAY hotter in oil temp than the 2012 did, but after reading up on it, this appears to be the new...

My current TT is similar weight and size to yours. I had a 2012 1500 Ram Big Horn with 3.55, 6 spd, Hemi. I was going to "upgrade" to the 2014/2015 1500 with an 8 spd and a diesel.

I bought a 3.92 for a reason and the window sticker says 22 highway. That's less than what the other lower gear vratio Rams would get, so it's adjusted. I got what the window sticker says in my 2012...

Gas mileage?

Just purchased a 2014 Bighorn 1500. 5.7 HEMI w/8spd and 3.92 rear. With under 200 miles on it, I had a 80 mile highway round trip at 65mph. I only averaged around 17mph. I got better than that in...
