Ordered it in Black Pearl Coat, also made a slight change will have the standard box on it, still will come with the Outdoorsman decals etc. but as my hunting days are long since gone due to a bum back, thought I would get it set up for towing my 5th wheel. Also getting bucket seats with the super stero pack and garmin built in, which will be a big change from my TomTom on the dash.

I didn't think the Rams were rated for 5th wheel towing, I thought in the 1500 class only the Ford F-150 was rated to tow 5th wheel.

Well they actually are rated to tow be it regular equalizer hitch or 5th wheel and really all you are looking at is Ford advertising, as hauling a 5th has more to do with payload and combined weight of both vehicles. Ford were first to advertise it but if you have been watching the new Dodge Ram Ads you can see them advertising it now. Just an update been away in southern California, just getting ready to head home to pick up new truck will give update when I get and will be posting pictures shortly there after.

Did some checking after I opened my big mouth about 5th Tow ratings, and when I looked around Ford is the only one that ever said there 150 or 1500 series truck was rated to tow a 5er. But when you do the comparables truck to truck or Ford to Dodge there certainly isn't much of a difference if any. I personally have been towing a 5th wheel with my Dodge 1500 for over 4 years now[3rd Gen] and have never had any trouble. And Ram does advertise the fact that their tow rating for all the 4th gen trucks have gone up plus the fact they can all tow a 5th.

On my main topic here I am heading back home from here in Southern California on Monday to pick up my new Outdoorsman. Pictures should show up after I get back down here.

Take care all and have a safe, prosperous and healthy New Year!
