Barrels,
I'm pulling a Jay Flight 22FB, going from Texas to Florida, Colorado, Oregon, and BC. The Dodge Ram 2500 should be fine in all conditions for the 6500 max weight of the 22FB.

I test drove both the Dodge Ram 2500 and the Ford F250. Both were good but I liked the Dodge just a little better.

There is no such thing as a Cummings motor. You should really know something about a topic before you belittle it. It is called a Cummins. They also have a nice 6 speed automatic transmission that is equal to or better than the Allison.
