If you are planning on towing, really look at the specs. I'm now in a situation where I wish I had done more research.
Check out the thread I started yesterday in the 4th Generation Dodge Ram Towing Forum. here http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread....005#post800005 I am finding out now that my truck will not tow what I want it to.

If your looking to pull weight, ensure you get the 4.10 dif if your sticking to the SRW model or go with a dually. If your going to be pulling LOTS of weight, Long Box Dually!!!

Other than than, I love the truck, handles great, fantastic ride and the extra... eww/ahhh! Love that heated steering wheel and seats in the cold weather here in Canada and the Grandkids love watching videos during trips.

Sound system is great, and I love the 2 position seat memory on the drivers' side. tilting rear mirrors come in handy and the back up assist works like a charm.

Ride is quite, compared to other diesels I've driven, and she always seems to deliver the power I need when I press the pedal.

JUST DO THE RESEARCH IF YOU INTEND TO TOW!!!


Regards and good luck...

Pte Jack

Thanks for the advice man here is what i will be doing the same stuff i did with my 1500 but i needed more power and better mpgs while towing plus less rear end sag.

This is what i will be using the 2500 for:

Hauling Gravel from time to time, im pulling two quads, my race car, and a yamaha boat i think the cummins should be enough for me.
