Default Help!!

I am testing a barely used 2011 3500 Laramie Dually. I just noticed that it's not the HO version (late 2011) but the early year model. Is there a big difference in the torque and capabilities? I am not interested in differences in creature comforts at all, merely towing capacity and handling. Should I opt for a 2012 instead? Thanks!!

Tim

OK, I went ahead and purchased the truck anyway. From what I can gather, the difference between the early and late 2011 torque rating has something to do with the tune. At least thats what the dealer told me. Who knows, I like the truck anyhoo.

HO is 800 ft lbs. and the non HO are 650 i think. Its an option you can purchase when you order the truck. Nothing a tune wont fix.

I took my travel trailer for a drive yesterday to see how it handles and whatnot. What a difference!! It's very clear I made a good choice going with the Dually. Even got them to throw in a tonneau cover.
