SO, for my Jayco Pinnacle 38FLSA loaded I should ONLY be looking at RAM 3500 with Duelly? I think I read Duelly tow rating is 29,000. When i looked on the 2004 chart i was dismayed. This truck I found is such a bargain, but I don't want to buy the WRONG truck to TOW my Pinnacle. When they moved my fiver with a 2500, while backing the trailer up a slope to park it, the 2500's rear wheels came off the ground about 2 inches > LOL

Also, my RAM_Friend tells me buy the manual too; claims he's been thru 2 automatics already.
Any help appreciated. I will mainly be hitching and hauling my Pinnacle MOSTLY on flat, freeways. Is it SAFE to use a 3500 2WD or for the 38FLSA does it mean 3500, 6-spd manual, duelly and 373 gearing?
