It is a beautiful truck. DH took his 2012 Ram for an oil change and started looking around the showroom. We ended up trading in the 2012 Ram 2500 Laramie 4x4 Crew Cab Diesel for a 2014 Ram 2500 Laramie 4x4 Mega Cab Diesel. Major difference in the ride with the coil suspension and much quieter inside. DD was much more comfortable in the back seat on our 7000 mile trip. Never heard her complain once. DH loves all the features. Here in AZ the air cooled seats are great during the summer.

Enjoy your new truck. I know we do.

Congrats, nice truck. I got my 6.4 Ram 2500 a few months ago and I love it.

Looked at the mega cab but they downgrade the hp on the 6.4 Hemi to 370. So that was out but love the room the have...incredible for a 2500 and the suspension this year is so nice.

I like the diesel lots but honesty not sure I'd ever have needed such a rig with our driving habits and work is a 15 or 20 min ride. Never had one either so...well, stayed with what I've had and what has worked great for us...Hemi's.

The Laramie is just beautiful on the inside, comfortable too and you can forget you are in a truck. The new 5 link coil suspension and the 6.4 Hemi added that extra bit I couldnt say no too.

Cant wait for our first outing! Would love to do 13,000 miles at one time but gotta pay for all this fun now!

Nice truck! I'm looking to purchase a Ram Laramie Ecodiesel and then purchase the JayFlight 26BH. Do you think I'll have any issues towing it? I shouldn't but I keep questioning myself. The 26BH is about 4300 dry and maxes out at 7k. Ideally I'd like to pack light and keep it around 6k.

Nice!
I just made the leap from a 1/2 ton to a RAM 2500 myself!
2 trips so far and loving the difference in towing.

The Ram Ecodiesel will not have a problem towing that TT I wouldn't think. They have good torque and the payload is s tad higher than on the 1500s so you should be fine. Certainly within the published tow rating and payload.

My 1500 was awesome at towing about anything I threw back there. The problem was I ran out of payload every time! I had the ram boxes and steps on the side, plus it was a Laramie so my payload was only about 1300 total pounds. Time I added the trailer tongue weight, two passengers and some gear, I was maxed.

Now I have 2800# of payload and can tow more weight too so all is good now!

Plus, who doesn't like a new truck!

Nice looking rig. I want a 2500 6.4 mega cab in white. Fantastic looking truck, tons of power in a gas engine and supposed to be a great ride for a 3/4 ton truck. Enjoy it and keep us updated how it does for you.
