Default '08 2500 Hemi 4x4

Hello everyone. I'm a 59 year old who happens to be a Ram fan. I've owned three over the years. My last one was a 2003 2500 Hemi 2wd. My only 2wd in the last 30 yrs. My wife and I are offshore fishing fanatics. We bought a new boat a few months ago. It weighs approx. 9000 lbs loaded. Our '03 Hemi wouldn't pull it out of the boat ramp (very steep) where we have our fishing hideaway....ergo we got rid of the 2wd and bought a 4x4. It wasn't power....just traction. These hemi motors are mules. The new one just tractors the boat out like it's a jon boat. HOORAY! Our son is a Magnum nut. He owns a 2005 Hemi Magnum, which he races. It's virtually stock, except for some intake, exhaust, and software adjustments. It USED to turn near 13 flat in the 1/4 mile. He totaled it last Sat night. Some guy in a Ford F150 pulled out in front of him and he knocked him about 300' down the road. He and his passenger are bruised but OK. He's already talking about a new Ram Hemi so you guys may have a father and son newbie class.
