Salt And Vinegar is on a distinguished road

I have a 2012 CTD with a G-56 manual and 3.73 rear end 5" lift and a 24' enclosed sled trailer. Had it pulling 3 quads and camping supplies. It's a V-nose and I used to pull it with an '05 Duramax.

Off the bat I noticed the Ram can pull the trailer much faster than the Duramax could. It would top out at 65-70 MPH and it would run out of steam. The Cummins would go upwards of 80, didn't really have the balls to push it further than that on a new truck.

The cummins is getting 11.2MPG loaded like that, with a 5" lift and 35" tires.

Props to Dodge for offering the manual as well, I love the added control I get while towing with the stick, the exhaust brake works really well in the manual, Id say better than in my buddies LongHorn 3500.

Thats about all I have for 'y'all
