99 V10 is on a distinguished road

If I remember correctly in 99 Dodge didn't make a SWR 1 ton 4x4. But you could option the heavier rear end (Dana 80) with the heavy sway bar & springs. My 99 was optioned that way. I hook up our TT about 10,000# with about a 750-1000# tongue weight & it barely sets the truck down any.
Pretty much the V-10 & the Cummins truck where the same in most ways. The V-10 uses the same type thermostat as the Cummins. Ours has the NV4500 5sp the same as the diesel. I even believe it uses the same clutch.
My point is the V10 Ram was as heavy duty as the Cummins Ram.
