Good friend of mine has the same one in black. He tows a big boat with it. I used it one time to tow my boat which weighs 14,000 pounds (boat and trailer) and that truck towed it like it wasn't even there.

Love the jake brake too. I didn't even have to step on the brakes until coming to a stop. Just let off the gas (diesel) and she slows right down.

Yeah they are impressive. I've had a 14k directional drill behind this one and it handled it well. My first Ram truck and I love it.

I stayed with the 6.0L Vortec.

I was leaning toward the diesel for the last two years, but at the end of the day the gasser would meet all my present and future planned travel/towing needs.

A new TT is in the future, but will be well within the new TV's capabilities....., I don't have a need for a nice big heavy 5th wheel
