Redlongbed is on a distinguished road

I run 33X12.50 Dick Cepek Mud Country's on my 2002 ram with a 2'' leveling kit. I have only towed once with these tires so far, it was about a 5 hour round trip tow with about 6500 pounds. The tires performed great and they have done well so far on and off-road for me. I really like them because they have the aggressive terrain but don't have the deafeningly loud hum that most mud-terrain tires have, which is great for long trips. As far as gears, I run 3.92's in the rear with the factory limited slip and they tow great and do really well off-road. I normally do not have to put the truck in four-wheel drive unless it is some serious stuff. Good luck with everything and what you are doing sounds awesome I would love to do something similar myself someday! And the Ram is a great choice for your needs.
