  1. 2017 1500 Laramie w/3.21 rear end

    So, I have been going back and forth, literally losing sleep over this first world problem. I'm looking at a 2017 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie Crew Cab 4x4 with the 8 speed 3.21 rear end (payload 1510, max trailer weight 7,990). Our rig is a Keystone Cougar X-Lite 29bhs that comes in at 32.5 total...
