  1. Service To A Stranger

    Service To A Stranger

    Getting ready to pull a guy out of a big ditch in the parking field. The ditches are hard to see at night. My tires are about done; and the grass is slick with dew. But with the weight of the loaded JohnnyBox, the Ram pulls the KIA out with ease. No problem.
  2. Service To The Senior

    Service To The Senior

    The Ram had to be unhitched to help the ol' Gray Ghost with a jump to get started. New battery is due when we get home.
  3. Another Show!

    Another Show!

    Loading up the Ram with the JohnnyBox and the Gray Ghost. Heading to Gettysburg in the morning for the year's second and final antique car show.
  4. Now We're Haulin'

    Now We're Haulin'

    Finally, a car show in June that wasn't cancelled. Heading to Coolspring, Pennsylvania; awesome museum there. The JohnnyBox is loaded with what I borrowed it for in the first place: 3,800 pounds of 54-year-old gorgeous iron. That's what the trailer weighs, too.
  5. Another Long Haul

    Another Long Haul

    Another great deal on a good, cheap car. She likes this one better. North Carolina was a short trip.
  6. Long Haul

    Long Haul

    What a great deal on a cheap car for my youngest daughter, worth going to Georgia to get it. Love those southern cars . . . no rust. Rented a lightweight trailer; the JohnnyBox is for protecting the antiques, and it's real heavy.
  7. Delivered To Your Front Door

    Delivered To Your Front Door

    Now that's how you park a trailer stuffed full of furniture . . . right up to the front porch. Helping my other son move into his first home after graduation. Thank goodness, no remodeling necessary.
  8. Moving Buddies

    Moving Buddies

    Helping a good friend move his family and all their stuff. I don't like the squatting that I'm seeing here.

    Reuniting Daughter And Car

    My precious daughter finally makes it to rehabilitation, and is doing so well that she is permitted to have her car. That's drug rehab, so this was a very happy day. She completed the 8-month program and is living free from addiction today.
  11. Performance Mods - Engine - 4.7 Liter V8
    I have a 2003 dodge ram 1500 4x4 with the 4.7 liter. Factory specs say i can tow 8000 lbs. I want to increase that to say 12000. I know what to do about suspension but just wondering if I can increase the performance enough to handle that. Just put a new crate motor in it as well. Any...

  14. 2011 Dodge Ram Forum
    Hi All - I'm the original owner of a 2011 1500 Crew Cab 4x4 Sport with 56k miles. Though my mileage is low I use it 20% of the time to tow my enclosed car trailer. I've changed the oil when the computer chirps or if it hasn't after 9 mos and haven't had any problems. I called local Ram dealer...
  15. LD RAM - General Discussion
    I find myself in a bad situation. I am hoping the dealership is going to figure out what to do. We bought a new 2020 1500 limited on Thursday. The purpose of this truck it to tow my horse from FL to CA in the early summer and back in the fall. Over the Rockies and long-distance driving. We...

  17. Prospective Buyers - Question and Answer Forum
    I am shopping to buy a Ram 2500 or 3500, diesel, to pull a 5th wheeler that we will travel in full time for the next year. My max budget is $35k, and from what I'm seeing the typical sales prices means I can get an older Ram with low miles (not too commonly found though) or a newer one with...
  18. Towing
    Just added what seems to be a factory hitch to my 2001 Ram 1500. There is a partial harness and connection box for the trailer side but vehicle side is jacked up. Can’t seem to find a factory harness or replacement. Any chance the truck was “pre-wired“ for a tow hitch and I just need to find...

    First Towing Duty

    My Ram's first towing duty: moving my son from Iowa to Kentucky.
  20. Towing
    Can someone tell me how I would know if I had e-TSC. Owners manual only briefly mentions it, but no details. Am anticipating a travel trailer in the near future with a Anderson weight distribution hitch that incorporates sway control. Have read somewhere that the two might oppose each other...
