Max trailer weight with the 5.7 is going to kill you. I'd stick to 10-11,000 GVWR max.. and that's going to be miserable.

You're probably looking at the 30-34' range in the light/ultra light 5th...

That's what I'm saying, though not stated well. Travel Trailers have a constant weight, but typically they aren't weighted properly.. A good one will put the fresh water tank between the axles,...

That's the one thing I'll give Ford. I love the look of the Ram fenders, but they make it really hard to see utility and flatbed trailers behind you. I also much prefer the Ford/GMC mirrors over...

I would say you don't "need" to, however it might smooth the ride of the camper if you did. It would reduce the bounce, which would help keep things from bouncing around in the RV. I wondered the...

Price tag is all it took for me to buy a 17 Ram 3500.. Apples to apples during "Truck Month" the XL was $8,000 more than the Tradesman. That didn't even include power windows or locks..

My two pennies.. Don't go with the factory setup. If you have a long bed, it's not as bad of an option, but for a short bed I wouldn't do it again. The B&W hitch for the prep is rock solid I will...

2012 was the last year gearing options came with the Cummins in non DRW formats. When the 13 refresh hit, it was highest gear for all but DRW sadly.

That's exactly what they're for. They are lower bumpers, designed to stop things from going under the truck in an impact. They added them in 2012, I found that with the assistance of Ranch Hand...

I think they're comparing the 2-3500 to the 4500's. They HD tow hooks are perfectly useable.

As for the 1500, I'd be worried about messing up the bumper, but more for the lack of clearance than...

If you have the prep group, you're going to have fewer options, even less so when you see my second point. I went...

Current, I don't know. I know 12 and prior, they just came in 4.56.

2500 and 3500 SRW, Dually gets to choose.

Most C&C's are 4.56 as well, which isn't available on the 3500.
