Anyone have any real world experience towing with one of these. Got my eye on one but unsure about the Hemi hauling. Would be pulling a 320BHDS actually just over 36ft and weighs just over 9000 loaded plus a family of five. Was looking at new CTD 2500 SRW but found this and really like the money savings. It has 35000 miles and could get into it for around 16,000.00. Can't find much online about these big trucks with the Hemi. Any help would be great.

My brother owns one. He tows a gooseneck 4 horse trailer around. He also has a flatbed gooseneck trailer that he hauls hay on. He has pulled about 11,000 lbs with it. The down fall on the '04 is not being able to turn off the overdrive (it only has tow / haul mode) He was disappointed with it until he got a Bullydog programmer. The tranny works so much better now! I pulled a 11,000 LB 5TH wheel camper with my 08 Mega Cab Hemi.
